Juvenile Law Appellate Court Opinion

by Townsend, Karen


AC41709 - In re Avia M. ("The respondent mother appeals from the judgment of the trial court terminating her parental rights with respect to her daughter, Avia M. (child). On appeal, the respondent claims that the trial court improperly concluded that the petitioner, the Commissioner of Children and Families, proved by clear and convincing evidence that (1) the Department of Children and Families made reasonable efforts to reunify her, (2) she was unable or unwilling to achieve the requisite degree of personal rehabilitation, and (3) it was in the child’s best interest to terminate her parental rights. We affirm the judgment of the trial court.")
