No. C083747.

In re M.W. et al., Persons Coming Under the Juvenile Court Law. PLACER COUNTY DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES, Plaintiff and Respondent, v. A.W., Defendant and Appellant.

Court of Appeals of California, Third District, Placer.


NOT TO BE PUBLISHED

California Rules of Court, rule 8.1115(a), prohibits courts and parties from citing or relying on opinions not certified for publication or ordered published, except as specified by rule 8.1115(b). This opinion has not been certified for publication or ordered published for purposes of rule 8.1115.

MAURO, Acting P. J.

Father A.W. appeals from a juvenile court order terminating parental rights for his two children, M.W. and B.W. (Welf. & Inst. Code, § 366.26.) Pursuant to California Rules of Court, rule 8.200(a)(5), father joins and adopts by reference the arguments made by mother C.R. in her separate appeal of the same order. Mother argued the juvenile court erred in failing to find the beneficial parental relationship exception applied to her. (Welf. & Inst. Code, § 366.26, subd. (c)(1)(B)(i).) In In re M.W. (May 17, 2017, C083276) [nonpub. opn.], this court addressed mother's contention and concluded it lacked merit.

The Placer County Department of Health and Human Services contends father lacks standing to assert his contention on appeal. Even if father has standing to raise on appeal whether the juvenile court erred in failing to find the beneficial parental relationship exception applied to mother, this court already decided the issue in the M.W. decision, case No. C083276. Because father simply joins and adopts by reference mother's argument, we will affirm the juvenile court order.

DISPOSITION

The order of the juvenile court is affirmed.

HOCH, J. and RENNER, J., concurs.
