In re L.C., 253 N.C. App. 67 (2017)

Vacated and Remanded in Part
  • Citing to In re G.T., 791 S.E.2d. 274 (2016), aff'd per curiam, 808 S.E.2d 142 (2017) and its interpretation of the language in GS 7B-901(c), the trial court cannot determine for the first time in an initial dispositional order that aggravating circumstances under GS 7B-901(c) exist. Without those findings being made in an order prior to the initial dispositional order, the court’s conclusion that reasonable reunification efforts must cease was erroneous.
