HB 17-1111: Giving Juvenile Court Jurisdiction to Enter Protection Orders

On January 20, 2017, Rep. Susan Beckman introduced HB 17-1111, “Concerning Allowing Juvenile Courts to Enter Civil Protection Orders in Dependency and Neglect Cases.”

The bill clarifies that the juvenile court (court) has jurisdiction to enter civil protection orders in dependency and neglect actions in the same manner as district and county courts. The court must follow the same procedures for the issuance of the civil protection orders and use standardized forms. Civil protection orders must be entered into the central registry for protection orders and are enforced in the same manner as civil protection orders issued by other courts.

If the civil protection order is made permanent, it remains in effect after the termination of the dependency and neglect action. The clerk of the court shall file a certified copy of a permanent civil protection order in an existing district court case, if applicable, or with the county court in the county where the protected party resides.

The bill was introduced in the House and assigned to the Judiciary Committee. It is scheduled for hearing in committee on February 23, 2017, at 1:30 p.m.

On January 20, 2017, Rep. Susan Beckman introduced HB 17-1110, “Concerning Juvenile Court Jurisdiction Regarding Matters Related to Parental Responsibilities in a Juvenile Delinquency Case.”

The bill allows the juvenile court to take jurisdiction involving a juvenile in a juvenile delinquency case and subsequently enter orders involving parental responsibilities, parenting time, and child support when:

  • The juvenile court has maintained jurisdiction in a case involving an adjudicated juvenile, a juvenile with a deferred adjudication, or a juvenile on a management plan;
  • An action related to parental responsibilities or custody involving the same juvenile is not pending in a district court; and
  • All parties are in agreement or have been given proper notice.

The bill was introduced in the House and assigned to the Judiciary Committee. It is scheduled for hearing in committee on February 23, 2017, at 1:30 p.m.
