Abstract: This paper deals with the study of those closed subsets $F \subset \mathbb{R} ^3$ for which the following statement holds:

If $S$ is a properly immersed minimal surface in $\mathbb{R} ^3$ of finite topology that is eventually disjoint from $F,$ then $S$ has finite total curvature.

The same question is also considered when the conclusion is finite type or parabolicity.
