• Agency Overview


    The Juvenile & Domestic Relations Court (JDRC) hears all matters involving juveniles such as criminal or traffic matters. Juvenile delinquency cases involve a minor under the age of 18 who has been accused of committing an offense that would be considered criminal if committed by an adult. Status offenses are those acts that are unlawful only because they are committed by a minor. This court also handles other matters involving the family such as custody, support, and visitation.

    Teen Driver’s License Ceremony

    Drivers under 18 receive their first driver's license in a licensing ceremony. In this ceremony, teenage drivers and their parents or legal guardians appear before a judge to receive a permanent driver's license. After a teenage driver has a learner's permit for 9 months, completed a driver education course, and is at least 16 years and 3 months, they are eligible to participate in a licensing ceremony. In response to COVID-19, all ceremonies take place virtually online.
