In re K.L.T.Annotate this Case
The Supreme Court reversed the judgment of the trial court terminating Mother's parental rights in her minor son, holding that the trial court erred in concluding that grounds existed to terminate Mother's parental rights.
In terminating Mother's parental rights, the trial court found that a likelihood of future neglect existed due to Mother's history of domestic violence and abusive partners, her questionable new relationship, her failure to meaningfully engage in therapy, and her failure to exercise control over her household environment. The trial court also concluded that termination of Mother's parental rights was proper based on the ground of dependency and that termination of Mother's parental rights was in the child's best interests. The Supreme Court reversed, holding that the trial court erred in concluding that Mother's parental rights should be terminated on the basis of neglect and on the grounds of dependency.
