In Re Brian W.

Connecticut Appellate Court

November 2, 2010


Pro se father and grandparents appealed trial court’s decision to reinstate guardianship rights of mother. The initial change in custody had been accomplished through the probate court. The Appellate court held that, per C.G.S. § 45a-611, “in order to reinstate the parent as guardian, the court must find that the factors that resulted in the removal of the parent have been resolved satisfactorily and that it is in the best interests of the children to do so.” The trial court heard evidence from the grandparents as well as numerous professionals working with the family and ultimately concluded that the mother had resolved the issues that led to the change in guardianship. The appellate court found that there was evidence in the record to support the trial court’s decision.
