    AN ACT concerning courts.
 
    Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
 
    Section 5. The Juvenile Court Act of 1987 is amended by
changing Section 2-2 as follows:
 
    (705 ILCS 405/2-2)  (from Ch. 37, par. 802-2)
    Sec. 2-2. Venue.
    (1) Venue under this Article lies in the county where the
minor resides or is found.
    (2) If proceedings are commenced in any county other than
that of the minor's residence, the court in which the
proceedings were initiated may at any time before or after
adjudication of wardship transfer the case to the county of
the minor's residence by transmitting to the court in that
county an authenticated copy of the court record, including
all documents, petitions and orders filed therein, and the
minute orders and docket entries of the court. Transfer in
like manner may be made in the event of a change of residence
from one county to another of a minor concerning whom
proceedings are pending.
    (3) Not later than the 15th working day after the date an
order of transfer is entered, the clerk of the court
transferring a proceeding shall send to the clerk of the
receiving court in the county to which the transfer is being
made an authenticated copy of the court record, including all
documents, petitions, and orders filed therein, and the minute
orders and docket entries of the court. The clerk of the
receiving court shall set a status hearing within 10 business
days of receipt of the case and shall notify the judge of the
receiving court and all parties.
    (4) The receiving court shall review the court record
immediately upon receipt. Within 20 business days of receipt
of the record, the reviewing court shall send a notice to the
transferring court indicating it has accepted the case and
scheduled a status date. Until the transferring court receives
this notice, it continues to have jurisdiction over the case.
If for any reason the receiving court does not accept the
transfer, the receiving court shall, within 20 business days
of receiving the case, send a notice to the transferring court
indicating its reasons. The transferring court shall continue
its jurisdiction of the case and shall set the matter for
status within 20 business days.
