2015 ORS 419B.132¹
Delegation of jurisdiction among county juvenile courts

(1) When a proceeding is pending in the juvenile court of any county, the juvenile court of that county may authorize the juvenile court of any other county to do one or both of the following, when it will facilitate the disposition of the case without adverse effect on the interests of the child or ward:

(a) To conduct a hearing into the facts alleged to bring the child within the jurisdiction of the juvenile court, to determine the facts and to certify its findings to the court in which the case is pending.

(b) To assume jurisdiction over the case and administer protection supervision of the ward, when the court in which the proceeding is pending:

(A) Finds that the ward has moved to the other county or orders as part of its disposition of the proceeding that legal custody of the ward be given to a person residing in the other county; and

(B) Is advised that the court of the other county will accept the wardship and jurisdiction of the case. The county accepting wardship and jurisdiction shall pay the cost of administering protective supervision of the ward, unless the transferring and receiving counties otherwise agree. The county transferring jurisdiction shall pay the cost of transporting the ward, unless the transferring and receiving counties otherwise agree.

(2) When the juvenile court of one county is authorized by the juvenile court of another county to conduct a hearing into facts as provided in this section or ORS 419B.130 (Delegation of jurisdiction by county of residence), the facts so found and certified may be taken as established by the court of the county authorizing the hearing and, if adopted by written order of the latter court, form a part of its record in the case.
