Issues involve whether the biological father of a stillborn child can be deemed to have “willfully abandoned the care and maintenance of his . . . child.” Reversed and remanded.
Child abuse or maltreatment
Appellant appealed from an amended domestic violence order (DVO) granted on behalf of his significant other and her minor child; arguing the family court abused its discretion in refusing to continue the domestic violence hearing for a longer period of time than was granted and that the family court lacked jurisdiction to enter its amended DVO. Affirmed.
Appellant appealed from a domestic violence order entered, alleging the family court erred by considering hearsay testimony and that there was no other substantial evidence supporting entry of the DVO. Vacated and remanded with directions to dismiss the petition.
