What Is Proper Venue for Filing Case Involving Juvenile's Welfare?
In re: Z.R., Case no. 2014-0277
Ninth District Court of Appeals (Summit County)
When a complaint alleges that a child is a "dependent child," as defined in juvenile statutes based on a parent's earlier acts involving other siblings, may the complaint properly be filed either in the county where the child resides or in the county where the siblings reside?
Is a juvenile court permitted to dismiss a complaint because of improper venue?
