Section: Juvenile-family crisis referral to the court; continuing crisis

Statute: 2A:4A-83

When, in the judgment of the crisis intervention unit, a juvenile-family crisis continues to exist despite the provision of crisis intervention services and the exhaustion of appropriate community services, court intake services shall, by filing a petition, refer the case to the court. In counties where the crisis intervention units are not part of intake and a juvenile-family crisis continues to exist, the court shall immediately refer the case to intake for the filing of a petition pursuant to this section. Upon the filing of the petition, the jurisdiction of the court shall extend to the juvenile, parent or guardian, or other family member contributing to the crisis. L.1982, c. 80, s. 8, eff. Dec. 31, 1983.
