Juvenile Action: Relinquishment of Parental Rights
Action Taken by Trial Court: The county court, sitting as a juvenile court, found that the appellant relinquished his parental rights to Zoey S. through a validly executed relinquishment and his attempt at revocation of said relinquishment was invalid.
Assignments of Error on Appeal: Appellant assigns that the lower court erred in finding the Appellant's "voluntary" relinquishment was given voluntarily; given the fact that he had no legal counsel and was led to believe he had no other legal option.
