Docket No. V-20-290
The State of Tennessee, Department of Childrens Services, has filed a petition in the Circuit Court of Bradley County, Tennessee, seeking to terminate the parental rights of Centa Nitsch and Shad Allard to the child, Marcus Joseph Nitsch. A trial in this case is set for December 9, 2020 at 9:00 a.m. Centa Nitsch and Shad Allard must appear before this Court on that date to determine whether their parental rights to the subject child should be terminated and forever ended. The Court is located in Cleveland, Tennessee. If Centa Nitsch and Shad Allard do not come to the trial, the State will ask the Court to allow it to proceed without contest. That means that the State will ask the Court to let it present proof without having any lawyer appear and defend Centa Nitsch and Shad Allards rights at trial. If the Court believes that the Department of Childrens Services has proved its case, the Shad Allard and Centa Nitschs parental rights will be forever terminated, and they will never be able to see the child again or object to his adoption. If the Court issues an order granting the motion, Centa Nitsch and Shad Allard will have 30 days from entry of the order to contact the Court and appeal. Copies of all orders and motions filed in this case will be left for Centa Nitsch and Shad Allard with the Clerk of the Juvenile Court.
