PETITION TO TERMINATE PARENTAL RIGHTS AND PLACE CUSTODY WITH THE GEORGIA DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN RESOURCES, ACTING THROUGH THE APPLING COUNTY DEPARTMENT OF FAMILY AND CHILDREN SERVICES
FOR PETITION TO TERMINATE PARENTAL RIGHTS
TO: LEANNA MARIE GUISEWITE SURBER, the mother of said minor children, RICHARD ALLEN UNANGST, III, KENNETH L. MANNING, AND ADAM JOSHUA MURRAY, the putative fathers of said minor children, CHRISTOPHER ALAN SURBER, the legal father of said minor children, and to any other persons claiming to have a parental interest in said minor children, born on the dates above to Leanna Marie Guisewite Surber.
By Order of Service by Publication dated May 14, 2014, you are required to appear before the Juvenile Court of Appling County, Georgia to answer the allegations of a Petition to Terminate Parental Rights filed on May 14, 2014 by the Appling County Department of Family and Children Services. You may obtain a free copy of the petition directly or by mail from the clerk of said court. The general nature of the allegations are that the children are dependent children and the dependent state is likely to continue and cause serious physical, mental, emotional, or moral harm to the children unless the rights of the parents are terminated. The court hearing of your case has been scheduled for August 27, 2014, at 9:30 a.m., at the Appling County Courthouse in Baxley, Georgia.
The court at trial can enter a judgment ending your rights to the children if you fail to appear and show cause why your parental rights should not be terminated. A biological father may lose all rights to the children and not be entitled to object to the termination of his rights unless, within 30 days of receipt of this notice, he files: (1) a petition to legitimate the children; and (2) a notice of the filing of the petition to legitimate with the Juvenile Court of Appling County, Georgia.
A party has the right to an attorney in this proceeding. If you are unable to hire an attorney, the Court will appoint one for you if you are an indigent person.
If you have any questions concerning this notice of summons, contact the clerk’s office at (912) 367-8126.
WITNESS, the Honorable J. Alexander Johnson, Judge of said court, this the 14th day of May, 2014.
Ashley Mincey, Deputy Clerk,
Appling County, Georgia
