KYLIE L., APPELLANT V. STATE OF ALASKA, DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH & SOCIAL SERVICES, OFFICE OF CHILDREN’S SERVICES, APPELLEE.
Because the termination of parental rights is such as a drastic measure, the State has an obligation to provide timely and reasonable efforts to reunite a child with his or her family, unless an extreme exception applies, such as the parent exposing the child to a substantial risk of harm to the child’s health or safety.

JAMES KEVIN COLEMAN (aka JAMES KEVIN ALMUDARRIS), APPELLANT, V. STATE OF ALASKA, APPELLEE.
