- A history of domestic violence, assault, or sexual assault which causes grievous bodily harm or fear of harm.
- A parent’s neglect or substantial nonperformance of parenting functions.
- A long-term emotional or physical impairment which interferes with the parent’s performance.
- A long-term impairment resulting from drugs, alcohol or other substances that interferes with the performance of parenting functions.
- The absence or substantial impairment of emotional ties between the parent and child.
