Waters v. Div. of Family Servs., 498, 2005

An order terminating a father's parental rights in his daughter is reversed and remanded for further proceedings where the state deprived him of due process by terminating his parental rights without first providing a case plan for the daughter or attempting reunification with her, and the trial court's determination that he abandoned his daughter was factually erroneous.
