Bill Summary

Transfer child welfare proceedings. House Bill 16-1316, concerning the procedures for changing venue for proceedings relating to a child placed in the legal custody of a county department of social or human services, amended the venue statute for transferring child welfare proceedings between counties and struck the word "not" in one sentence. Due to this change, some courts are not transferring child welfare proceedings between counties after adjudication even though the intent of House Bill 16-1316 was to allow post-adjudication transfers. The act reinserts the word "not" to allow such transfers.
(Note: This summary applies to this bill as enacted.)
