In re Guardianship of Gabriel I.K. Johnson

Justia.com Opinion Summary: The Oxford County Probate Court awarded guardianship of a child to the child's paternal grandparents with the consent of the child's father, finding that the grandparents met their burden of proving by clear and convincing evidence that the mother was an unfit parent and that it was in the child's best interest to grant the guardianship. The mother appealed, arguing that the court erred in refusing to allow her to record the final hearing and that the court's judgment was not supported by sufficient findings or evidence. The Supreme Court affirmed, holding (1) the court did not err in denying the mother's request to record the final hearing at her own expense; and (2) the court's findings were sufficient to support its judgment.
