should be terminated. The
Court may also make other
orders including requiring a
parent to pay child support.

, the
mother and any other person claiming entitlement to
the legal custody of the

petition as to the mother
and, if the child is adjudicated to be a child in need
of care, the matter will
proceed immediately to an
admit or deny hearing as
to the parents on the permanency motion alleging
the mother and father are
unfit. A permanency hearing will be incorporated
into the proceeding.
The
hearing is before the court
in Division 6 at the Douglas
County Law Enforcement
and Judicial Center, 111 E
11th Street, Lawrence, Kansas. Prior to the proceeding, a parent, grandparent
or any other party to the
proceeding may file a written response to the pleading with the clerk of court.

Each party is hereby notified that, pursuant to

other person entitled to
custody) who fails to appear in person or by counsel at the hearing.
