Child custody and visitation: termination of parental rights: pending CINA appeal
CSA No. 1987, September Term, 2010. Reported. Opinion by Matricciani, J. Filed July 21, 2011. RecordFax #11-0721-07 (18 pages). Appeal from Howard County, Bernhardt, J. Affirmed.
Although child in need of assistance determinations and termination of parental rights adjudication are inexorably linked, the pendency of a CINA appeal does not bar a TPR case from proceeding in circuit court.
