Seward County, County Court Judge C. Jo Petersen

Attorney for Appellant:  Gregory C. Damman (Blevens & Damman)

Attorney for Appellee:  Barbara Armstead (Seward County Attorney’s Office)

Juvenile Action:  Termination of Parental Rights

Action Taken by Trial Court:  The county court, sitting in its capacity of a juvenile court, found that clear and convincing evidence existed to terminate the appellant’s parental rights pursuant to Neb. Rev. Stat. § 43-292(6) and that reasonable efforts to preserve and reunify the family, if required, under the direction of the court, had failed to corrections leading to the determination; that clear and convincing evidence existed to terminate the appellant’s parental rights pursuant to § 43-292(7);  and that the appellant is unfit and that termination is in the minor children’s best interests.

Assignments of Error on Appeal:  The appellant assigns as error on appeal that the county court, sitting in its capacity as a juvenile court, erred in: (1) terminating her parental rights pursuant to § 43-292(6) and finding that reasonable efforts were provided; (2) refusing to allow the minor children to testify; and (3) in finding that the State proved by clear and convincing evidence that she was unfit and that terminating her parental rights was in the minor children’s best interests.
