Anyone been through TPR appeal?
So in a sense, things were going too well for us. Bio Mom “disappeared” around 7 months ago. Showed for 1 court appearance, but not the following 2. Hasn’t complied with her court order. The judge TPR in December - we weren’t even sure if the mom knew. With just 23 days left in the 60 day appeal period, we just found out that the mom has placed an appeal. We are told that more than likely nothing will change as there are no grounds for appeal, but we wanted to know if others have been through an appeal at this point in the process, how long did it take for the appeal to be heard and quashed (or not if that was the case!)?
Many thanks for all and any responses/advice.
