Take The Mystery Out Of Family Court

If your child is prosecuted and the matter is resolved in Family Court, the proceedings can’t result in a criminal conviction. However, even if the charges do not result in a criminal conviction, your child can experience severe consequences. Under the law, a child is considered a juvenile delinquent in Family Court if:
  • The child is at least 7 years old and less than 16 years old at the time of the incident
  • The child committed an act that would be considered a crime if committed by an adult
  • The child is not criminally responsible for such conduct due to the child’s age, or the child is the defendant in a case that has been moved from Criminal Court to Family Court
Family Court can impose a range of dispositions, similar to the sentencing options available in criminal courts. Family Court dispositions can include conditional discharge, probation, placement and restrictive placement.
