In re K.W., ___ N.C. App. ___ (July 21, 2020)

Held: 
Affirmed
Remanded
  • Appellate court jurisdiction: Generally, arguments not made before the trial court are not reviewable on appeal. App. Rule 2 gives the appellate court discretion to review arguments not made at trial, which occurred here given that mother is indigent and was self-represented at trial. Mother’s notice of appeal was filed after the disposition was rendered but before it was entered. The appellate court granted mother’s writ for certiorari to proceed with the appeal.
