Minerva L. and Porfirio O. appeal the circuit court’s orders terminating their parental rights to their children Evelin O.-L., Erick O.-L., Porfirio O.-L., and Maria O.-L. Porfirio also appeals the order terminating his rights to his daughter Ana O.-L. The ground for termination at issue on this appeal is Wis. Stat. § 48.415(4), Continuing Denial of Periods of Physical Placement or Visitation. Both parents contend that the circuit court erred when it granted partial summary judgment in favor of the Dane County Department of Human Services. They assert that the circuit court applied the wrong legal standard in analyzing their constitutional arguments. We conclude the court applied the correct legal standard and properly granted partial summary judgment under § 48.415(4) in favor of the County. Accordingly, we affirm the orders terminating Minerva and Porfirio’s parental rights to all five children. Not recommended for publication in the official reports.
