Juvenile Law Appellate Court Slip Opinion

by Roy, Christopher


AC45241 - In re Aubrey K. ("The respondent mother, Victoria K., appeals from the judgment of the trial court, rendered in favor of the petitioner, the Commissioner of Children and Families, terminating her parental rights with respect to her minor daughter, Aubrey K. (Aubrey), on the ground that the respondent’s acts of parental commission or omission denied Aubrey the care necessary for her well-being pursuant to General Statutes § 17a-112 (j) (3) (C).2 The court also found that, although the Department of Children and Families (department) had made reasonable efforts to reunify the respondent with Aubrey, the respondent was unable or unwilling to benefit from reunification efforts; see General Statutes § 17a-112 (j) (1); and that termination of the respondent’s parental rights was in Aubrey’s best interest. See General Statutes § 17a-112 (j) (2). On appeal, the respondent’s single claim is that there was insufficient evidence for the trial court to find that the termination of her parental rights was in Aubrey’s best interest. We affirm the judgment of the trial court.")
