In re J.C. CA2/2
In this juvenile dependency appeal, S.P. (mother) challenges the juvenile court’s order terminating her parental rights to her 3-year-old son J.C. (son). Mother makes two arguments on appeal. First, she argues the juvenile court erred when it refused to apply the beneficial parental relationship exception to termination of parental rights. We conclude both that the juvenile court did not run afoul of our Supreme Court’s recent decision addressing this exception to the termination of parental rights (In re Caden C. (2021) 11 Cal.5th 614 (Caden C.)) and that substantial evidence supports the juvenile court’s decision.
Second, mother argues the order terminating parental rights must be reversed because the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services (Department) and the juvenile court failed to satisfy their initial inquiry obligations under the Indian Child Welfare Act of 1978 (25 U.S.C. § 1901 et seq. (ICWA)) and related California law.
