In re J.T., ___ N.C. App. ___, 796 S.E.2d 534 (2017)

Held: 
Vacated and Remanded
  • When an order ceasing reunification efforts contains insufficient findings of the criteria required to cease reasonable efforts, a termination of parental rights (TPR) order may cure those defects by making the required findings in the TPR order. Here, the TRP order failed to include the findings required to cease reunification. Both orders must be vacated.
