Termination of Parental Rights – Abuse of Discretion

WI Court of Appeals – District IV

Case Name: Waushara County Department of Human Services v. A.J.P.

Case No.: 2019AP2387

Officials: BLANCHARD, J.

Focus: Termination of Parental Rights – Abuse of Discretion

A.J.P. appeals the circuit court’s order terminating his parental rights to his child, E.D.P., on the petition of Waushara County Department of Human Services (the County). He challenges only the circuit court’s ruling in the dispositional phase of proceedings and makes no arguments regarding the grounds phase. He argues that the circuit court erroneously exercised its discretion by failing to adequately consider three of the factors pertinent to the disposition of a termination of parental rights case under WIS. STAT. § 48.426(3). I affirm the court’s ruling.
