Order of Child Protection Renewed 

Circuit court renewed a child protection order. Appellant challenged judgment for lack of substantial evidence to support a finding, that the order’s expiration would endanger the child. Even if appellant were right, reversal would still not be necessary, because no such finding is necessary to the judgment. Statutes governing child protection statutes are clear as to the elements for an ex parte order and the elements for renewing a full order. “The former explicitly requires a finding of “[a]n immediate and present danger of domestic violence” and the latter clearly, plainly, and unambiguously does not. Judgment affirmed in Missouri Court of Appeals, Southern District – SD37047.
