Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1: Stacie Odeneal, Lawrenceburg, Tennessee, for the appellant, Doloria H.

Attorneys 2:

Robert E. Cooper, Jr., Attorney General and Reporter; and Marcie E. Greene, Assistant Attorney General, for the appellee, State of Tennessee, Department of Children’s Services.

Judge(s): DINKINS

Mother’s parental rights to two children were terminated on the grounds of abandonment by failure to support, substantial non-compliance with permanency plans, and persistence of conditions. The court also concluded that termination of Mother’s rights was in the best interests of the children. Mother appeals, contending that the evidence does not support the statutory grounds or that termination is in the children’s best interest and asserting that the Department of Children’s Services did not make reasonable efforts to reunify the family. We affirm the judgment terminating her rights.
