What is Juvenile Court Services?

The juvenile court is a specialized court within the district court that presides over four kinds of cases related to children:

  • Child in Need of Assistance (CINA) cases most typically involve abused, abandoned, or neglected children, and sometimes lead to termination of parental rights.
  • Delinquency cases involve acts that would be considered criminal acts if committed by an adult.
  • Commitment proceedings involve the placement of a child in a hospital or other treatment facility for mental illness or a substance abuse problem.
  • Adoption.
