Juvenile courts have jurisdiction over the following:

  • Child custody determination
  • Establishing parentage
  • Termination of parental rights
  • Traffic violations committed by minors
  • Determining visitation rights for non-custodial parents
  • Child neglect and abuse
  • Ordering children to the custody of the Department of Children’s Services
  • Ordering and enforcing child support for children of unmarried parents
  • Enforcing truancy laws
  • Consent for medical treatments for a minor if their parent is absent
