juvenile

The Juvenile Division handles all Dependency and Delinquency cases.

Dependency proceedings involve the protection of children who have been or are at risk of being seriously abused, neglected or abandoned. The Department of Health and Human Services investigates the allegations and is the petitioner on cases filed in Dependency Court.

Delinquency proceedings involve children under the age of 18 alleged to have committed a delinquent act (would be criminal if committed by an adult). The District Attorney is the petitioner on cases filed in the Delinquency Court.

Only persons with a legal right to do so may receive information regarding juvenile cases, such as the mother or father of the minor. Information regarding juvenile matters is confidential and cannot be given out over the phone. If you have a legal right to view a juvenile matter, you must do so in person with proper identification.
