Com., Cabinet for Health and Family Services v. A.A.W.K., et al., 199 S.W.3d 199 (Ky.App. 2006)
Issue and Holding:
Whether the Cabinet can appeal an order denying a petition to involuntarily terminate parental rights. The Court held no, KRS 625.110 does not allow such appeals.
The Cabinet appealed from a family court order denying its petition to involuntarily terminate the parental rights of A.A.W.K. and J.J.K. By motion of the Court of Appeals, the appeal was dismissed.
KRS 625.110 provides that no party may appeal a court’s decision to deny a petition for involuntary termination of parental rights. Therefore, the Court denied the appeal for lack of jurisdiction.
