Unpublished Opinion No. 2007-UP-180
Submitted April 2, 2007 -  Filed April 18, 2007


AFFIRMED


Daniel L. Draisen, of Anderson, for Appellant.

Dottie C. Ingram, of Anderson, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  This appeal arises from the termination of parental rights of Anita Barbour.  The family court found her parental rights should be terminated on four grounds:  1) failure to remedy the conditions which led to removal; 2) willful failure to visit; 3) willful failure to provide support; and 4) the children have been in DSS’ custody for fifteen of twenty-two months.  Additionally, the family court found termination was in the best interest of the children.  See S.C. Code Ann. § 20-7-1572 (Supp. 2006).

After a thorough review of the record pursuant to Ex Parte Cauthen, 291 S.C. 465, 354 S.E.2d 381 (1987), we affirm the family court’s ruling and grant counsel’s petition to be relieved.[1]

AFFIRMED.

HEARN, C.J., GOOLSBY, and STILWELL, JJ., concur.


[1] We decide this case without oral argument pursuant to Rule 215, SCACR.
