This Week in Missouri Family Law: More than one incident was at issue supporting termination of parental rights

Mother's inability to discipline children appropriately, or protect them from Father's abuse, supported a termination of her parental rights under provisions related to abuse, neglect, and failure to rectify. Her repeat conduct after parenting classes was not a single incident, but was one of many and showed a failure to rectify. Evidence, including Children's improvement after separation from parents, supported finding that termination of parental rights was in Children's best interest.
In the Interest of F.C., M.C., and D.C., P.C.(S). Appellant, v. Missouri Department of Social Services, Children's Division, Respondent. Missouri Court of Appeals Southern District
