Sec. 12. (a) Subject to subsection (b), a court having jurisdiction under IC 31-17-2 of a child custody, parenting time, or child support proceeding in a marriage dissolution has concurrent original jurisdiction with the juvenile court for the purpose of modifying custody of a child who is under the jurisdiction of the juvenile court because:

        (3) the child is the subject of a paternity proceeding.

        (2) terminates the child in need of services proceeding, the juvenile delinquency proceeding, or the paternity proceeding.
    (c) If a juvenile court:
        (1) modifies child custody, child support, or parenting time; and
        (2) terminates a child in need of services proceeding or a juvenile delinquency proceeding regarding the child;
the court having concurrent original jurisdiction under subsection (a) shall assume or reassume primary jurisdiction of the case to address all issues.
    (d) A court that assumes or reassumes jurisdiction of a case under subsection (c) may modify child custody, child support, or parenting time in accordance with applicable modification statutes.
    (e) An order modifying child custody, child support, or parenting time issued under this section survives the termination of the child in need of services proceeding or the juvenile delinquency proceeding

        (2) the child is the subject of a juvenile delinquency proceeding that does not involve an act described under IC 31-37-1-2.
