In re T.S., No. C059718

By FindLaw Staff on July 15, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

Juvenile court order terminating parental rights is affirmed where the court did not abuse its discretion in declining to find an exception to termination of parental rights based on the minor's tribe identification of guardianship as the permanent plan for the minor, as the court is not obligated to adopt the permanent plan designated by a child's tribe without conducting an independent assessment of detriment, and there were no appropriate families that were willing to assume guardianship of the minor.
