Juvenile Court

The mission of the Richmond County Juvenile Court is to fairly and impartially decide cases and administer justice through the comprehensive delivery of services to children and families. It is the intent of Juvenile Court to promote a juvenile justice system that will protect the community, impose accountability for violations of law, provide treatment and rehabilitation, and equip juvenile offenders with the ability to live responsibly and productively. The Juvenile Court strives to preserve and strengthen family relationships while only removing a child from his or her home when intervention is essential to protecting the child and enabling him or her to live in a secure and stable environment.
