Trial Judge’s Refusal to Terminate Parental Rights on Best Interests Overturned By Court of Appeals
In Re Ella H., No. M2020-00639-COA-PT
On January 13, 2021, my clients received a moral and legal victory. When I originally took their case in July 2018, the mother and stepfather of a then three year old girl seemed to have an ironclad case to terminate the biological father’s parental rights. The biological father knew exactly where my clients lived and how to contact them. The biological father had never established his paternity and never paid more than token support for the child. He had not initiated contact with the child since she was seventeen months old.
