Held: 
Dismissed
  • Pursuant to N.C. App. Rule 3.1(d), a no-merit brief was filed by respondent mother’s attorney. Although advised by her attorney that she has a right to file a pro se brief, respondent mother failed to do so. No issues were argued or preserved for review.
  • In a footnote, the opinion quotes State v. Velasquez-Cardenas, ___ N.C. App. ___, 815 S.E.2d 9 (sl. op. concurrence at 3 filed 4/17/2018), “Rule 3.1(d) does not grant indigent parents the right to receive an Anders-type review of the record by our Court, to consider issues not properly raised.”
