Delegation of jurisdiction among county juvenile courts

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:

(1) The court may:

(a) Conduct a hearing into the facts alleged to bring the child within the jurisdiction of the juvenile court;

(b) Determine the facts;

(c) Enter an order including the court’s findings; and

(d) Notify the court in which the case is pending.

(2) The court may 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. [1993 c.33 §59; 2003 c.396 §38; 2017 c.252 §19]

Notes of Decisions

Under Former Similar Statutes

Due process does not require the appoint­ment of “independent counsel” to represent the child in every adop­tion or termina­tion of parental rights pro­ceed­ing. F. v. C., 24 Or App 601, 547 P2d 175 (1976)

When sec­ond termina­tion of parental rights pro­ceed­ing was not itself barred, proof was not limited by res judicata or collateral estoppel principles to facts or evidence which was not considered in or which came in to being after first pro­ceed­ing.
