Domestic Relations – Parent & Child – Termination of Parental Rights Petition – Paternity – Legitimation – Amended Birth Certificates – Presumption – First Impression (access required)

In re J.K.C. The respondent-father’s name on the children’s amended birth certificates creates a rebuttable presumption that he has legitimated them. Since the guardian ad litem failed to rebut that presumption, respondent’s parental rights were not subject to termination based on a failure to legitimate. We affirm the trial court’s dismissal of the petition to terminate respondent’s parental rights.
