Interest of J.P. - Nos. 20130048, 20130057 & 20130058
L.P. appeals from a district court order terminating her parental rights to J.P., M.B., and A.B.
In 2009, the district court found the children were deprived and placed the children in the custody of Williams County Social Services. Permanency hearings were held in 2010 and 2011, and the court ordered the children continue to remain in the custody of Social Services. In November 2011, the court dismissed the permanency order relating to J.P. and returned the child to L.P.'s care. In December 2011, J.P. was removed from L.P.'s custody and temporarily placed in the custody of Social Services. In February 2012, the court found J.P. was a deprived child and ordered she be placed in the custody of Social Services. In April 2012, the State petitioned to terminate L.P.'s parental rights to all three children. After a hearing, the court granted the petitions and terminated L.P.'s parental rights, finding each child was in Social Services' custody for more than four hundred and fifty out of the previous six hundred sixty nights, each child was a deprived child, and the deprivation was likely to continue.
On appeal, L.P. argues the district court erred in allowing hearsay testimony during the hearing, the court's findings of fact are not adequate, the court abused its discretion in applying statutory termination requirements, the court erred in not ordering reinstatement of reunification efforts, and the court erred in finding deprivation was likely to continue.
