Juvenile Law Appellate Court Slip Opinion

by Carey, Sean


AC46336 - In re Na-Ki- J. (“The respondent mother, Nakia M., appeals from the judgments of the trial court, rendered in favor of the petitioner, the Commissioner of Children and Families, terminating her parental rights with respect to her children, N, M, and T. On appeal, the respondent claims that the court (1) violated her due process rights to be present and to testify at her termination of parental rights trial when it denied her request for a continuance, and (2) abused its discretion in denying her request for a continuance. We disagree and, accordingly, affirm the judgments of the trial court.”)
