Juvenile cases are handled in various ways, typically depending on the jurisdiction of the case. Delinquency cases are very similar to criminal cases since they involve violations of the law with criminal penalties. While the attorney must be versed in criminal laws, he/she must also know the Juvenile Act, as well. This type of Juvenile case is initiated by a Petition being filed through a Juvenile Probation office. Conversely, juvenile dependency, incorrigibility and/or truancy will involve work within the parameters of the Child Protective Services law. The attorneys at Bolkovac Law have handled dozens of cases involving Juveniles either through Juvenile Probation or Children and Youth Services.
