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.
