2015 ORS 419C.053¹
Transfer to court of county of youth’s residence

(1) If a proceeding is initiated in a court of a county other than the county in which the youth resides, that court, on its own motion or on the motion of a party made at any time prior to disposition, may transfer the proceeding to the court of the county of the youth’s residence for such further proceeding as the receiving court finds proper. A like transfer may be made if the residence of the youth changes during the proceeding, or if the youth has been adjudicated within the jurisdiction of the court where the proceeding is initiated on grounds specified in ORS 419C.005 (Jurisdiction) (1), and other proceedings involving the youth are pending in the county of the youth’s residence. Certified copies of the court records pertaining to the immediate proceeding shall accompany the case on transfer.

(2) Notwithstanding subsection (1) of this section, if a youth has no ascertainable residence in any county in this state, the court of the county wherein a proceeding is initiated may adjudicate any petition under ORS 419C.005 (Jurisdiction) (1). [1993 c.33 §153; 1995 c.422 §73c]
