HB17-1111 - Dependency And Neglect Civil Protection Orders

Passed/Signed into Law
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.

(Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
