Juvenile Court

Juvenile Matters

Juvenile matters involve children under the age of 18 and are heard in the County Court. Juveniles who appear in court must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Juvenile court petitions are matters involving children who are:

  • Neglected
  • Abused
  • Dependent
  • Delinquent

The court also has jurisdiction in domestic relation cases where the care, support or custody of minor children is an issue.
