(from Ch. 37, par. 802-2)
(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.
