Termination of Parental Rights:
Recent Developments in Tennessee - On-Demand

Audio conference now available on-demand.

The number of parental rights decisions handed down each year by the Tennessee appellate courts has been on the rise over the past few years. In fact, in 2014, there were more than 100 cases in this area of the law.

In January 2015, the Tennessee Supreme Court, in In re Kaliyah S., held that the Department of Children’s Services is not required to prove that it made reasonable efforts to reunite the parent with the child as a precondition to termination of parental rights. Instead, the state’s highest court held that, in a termination proceeding, the extent of the efforts made by the state is weighed in the court’s analysis of whether termination is in the child’s best interest.

In addition to the In re Kaliyah S. decision, other issues recently considered by Tennessee appellate courts include:

  • Termination of parental rights on ground that mother committed severe child abuse by failing to protect child from father is reversed when there was no evidence that father had ever exhibited violence toward any other child prior to incident with mother’s child. Mother cannot be charged with knowledge that father would harm her child simply because he was violent toward her and his ex-wife.
  • Evidence did not support trial court’s termination of parental rights on ground of abandonment by willful failure to visit when father, who lived in Indiana and was of modest means, did not have driver’s license or transportation to Cookeville to visit children and “visited” with children every other week by speaking with them for at least 20 minutes by phone.
