All juvenile cases are confidential. The minor, his or her parents or legal guardian(s), and attorneys of record may obtain copies of court minute orders and selected court documents by appearing at the Clerk's Office counter with photo identification. The records will not be mailed, and no information will be given over the phone.
The Juvenile Division handles cases involving a minor (someone under the age of 18) who is accused of breaking the law or who is in danger of or have been abused or neglected. You can learn more about these case types by following the links below.
- Dependency, when a minor has suffered abuse or neglect, or needs protection from a parent or guardian.
- Delinquency, when a minor has violated a criminal law or ordinance, or is engaged in delinquent behavior such as habitual truancy.
Juvenile matters are heard in-person unless otherwise ordered by the Court.
