State in re P.F. 2017 UT App 159 (August 24, 2017)

Aug 24, 2017

In this appeal from the juvenile court’s order terminating parental rights of the child, the mother argued, among other things, that the child should have been placed with family or a member of her tribe as prescribed in the Indian Child Welfare Act.  The court of appeals affirmed the termination order, holding that bonding with a foster family can qualify as “good cause” where, as here, the initial placement did not violate the ICWA.
