Section 125.015 - Jurisdiction of protective proceedings; proceedings in other states.
(1) The probate courts and commissioners provided for in ORS chapter 111 have exclusive jurisdiction of protective proceedings.
(2) Subject to ORS 125.800 to 125.852 for adults as defined in ORS 125.802, if an Oregon court exercising probate jurisdiction becomes aware that a protective proceeding has been commenced in another state, the Oregon court shall notify the court in the other state of the proceedings in this state. After consultation with the court of the other state, the Oregon court shall determine whether it is in the best interests of the respondent or protected person for the Oregon court to continue to exercise jurisdiction in the matter or whether it would be in the best interests of the respondent or protected person to terminate the Oregon proceedings and transfer the matter to the other court.
