Unpublished opinion An unpublished opinion of the North Carolina Court of Appeals does not constitute controlling legal authority. Citation is disfavored, but may be permitted in accordance with the provisions of Rule 30(e)(3) of the North Carolina Rules of Appellate Procedure. Respondent appeals an order terminating his parental rights on the grounds of willful abandonment. Because a guardian ad litem was not appointed to represent the best interests of the minor child as required by N.C. Gen. Stat. § 7B-1108(b) (2005), we reverse and remand for a new hearing.
