INVOLUNTARY ADMISSION FOR PERSONS FOUND NOT COMPETENT TO STAND TRIAL
For proceedings under this chapter, jurisdiction is vested in the probate court in the county where the person sought to be admitted resides or is detained. For a person who is subject to an order for involuntary admission under this chapter, jurisdiction for a hearing held pursuant to this chapter is vested in the probate court for the county wherein the person is receiving services or where the receiving facility that has custody of the person is located, unless the court making the initial involuntary admission order has specifically retained jurisdiction over such person.
