The court entered an order finding that Respondent father was unfit to parent his 4-year-old minor child.  It was in the minor’s best interest to terminate his parental rights.

The juvenile court expressly found Respondent not to be credible.  The court was permitted to take into account the fact that Respondent had knowingly remained uninvolved in the minor’s life instead of submitting to paternity testing much earlier.
