Juvenile

Cases involving children of unmarried parents are heard in the Juvenile Court.

juvenile-delinquency

Cases involving the rights and interests of children of parents who are or have been married are heard in the Domestic Relations Court. In contrast, cases involving children of unmarried parents are heard in the Juvenile Court.

A parent may ask the Juvenile Court to require a paternity test to determine the paternity of the child. The Juvenile Court may then issue orders regarding sole, joint, or shared custody, visitation rights, parenting time, and child support.

Finally, the Juvenile Court also handles cases brought in by Child Services. These cases typically involve neglected or abused children.

We're On Your Side

Unmarried parents have somewhat different rights than married parents regarding their children. We can help you determine what outcome you want and build a case for you in Juvenile Court. Our attorneys have substantial experience in dealing with Juvenile Court cases and we’ll stand by you to seek the solution that’s best for you and your child. Contact Kirkland & Sommers, online or call (937) 853-5555.
