(705 ILCS 405/3-22)
(from Ch. 37, par. 803-22)
Findings and adjudication.
(1) After hearing the evidence
the court shall make and note in the
minutes of the proceeding a finding of whether or not the person is a minor
requiring authoritative intervention. If it finds that the minor is
not such a person, the court shall order the petition
dismissed and the minor discharged from any restriction
previously ordered in such proceeding.
(2) If the court finds that the person is a minor
requiring authoritative intervention, the court shall note in its findings
that he or she does require authoritative intervention.
The court shall then set a time for
a dispositional hearing to be conducted under Section 3-23 at which hearing
the court shall determine whether it is in the best interests of the minor
and the public that he be made a ward of the court. To assist the court
in making this and other determinations at the dispositional hearing, the
court may order that an investigation be conducted and a dispositional report
be prepared concerning the minor's physical and mental history and condition,
family situation and background, economic status, education, occupation,
history of delinquency or criminality, personal habits, and any other
information that may be helpful to the court.
