Juvenile Division

Juvenile Court is the Division of the Circuit Court that holds jurisdiction over dependency and juvenile delinquency matters. Delinquency matters are those in which individuals under the age of eighteen violate the law. The Fifteenth Circuit has implemented numerous programs and offers resources to assist youth and families.

Dependency matters involve children who have been abandoned, abused or neglected or surrendered for adoption. Judges must make decisions regarding the custodial placement of dependent children and determine the "best interests" of the child. In these cases, Children's Legal Services represents the Department of Children & Families. Parents involved in dependency court are also entitled to legal representation and may obtain an attorney on their own or the court will appoint legal counsel on their behalf.
