What is Juvenile Court Services?

The juvenile court is a specialized court within the district court that presides over four kinds of cases related to children:
Child in Need of Assistance (CINA) cases most typically involve abused, abandoned, or neglected children, and sometimes lead to termination of parental rights.
Delinquency cases involve acts that would be considered criminal acts if committed by an adult.
Commitment proceedings involve the placement of a child in a hospital or other treatment facility for mental illness or a substance abuse problem.
Adoption.
