S-15-1159 In re Interest of Darryn C.

Separate Juvenile Court for Douglas County, Judge Christopher E. Kelly

Attorneys: Jeffrey A. Wagner (Schirber & Wagner LLP) (for Appellant, Sharon J., intervener) --- early case summary review, no brief filed by Appellee/State.

Civil: Custody

Proceedings below: Appellant was allowed to intervene in the juvenile matter as the paternal grandmother of the child. She filed a motion for custody of her grandson, which was denied. The parents relinquished their parental rights to the child and the court received the relinquishments and terminated parental rights.

Issues: The juvenile court erred in (1) failing to find the relinquishments of the parents provided Appellant priority under the parental preference doctrine; (2) finding it was not in the best interest of the child to be placed in Appellant's custody.
