Domestic Relations – Parent & Child – Termination of Parental Rights – Right to Counsel – Waiver – Guardian ad Litem’s Role (access required)

In re P.D.R. Our Court of Appeals applied G.S. § 15A-1242 to find that a trial court had abused its discretion by allowing the respondent in a termination-of-parental-rights (TPR) proceeding to waive her right to counsel. Section 15A-1242 applies in criminal proceedings and has no application in TPR proceedings.
