Preparing for a Juvenile Court Hearing

When a parent has a child that is going through Juvenile Court hearing. and he going to be facing some sort of judgment from the judge. First thing to keep in mind is this is not going to be a jury. The Juvenile court cases are heard before a judge and a judge is going to be the one to decide whether or not this case warrants court action. Now the most important part of this process is , why are you here. You are here to help rehabilitate and supervise this down person who has made a mistake, so that when they become older. Their mistakes don't follow them for the rest of their lives. So when you are going through this process. It really does depend on the case because you may need to have lots of legal advice before you go into court. But the idea is the court should not be considered adversarial as much as it should consider. Your part of your team. You are walking with the course. To make sure that child never makes that mistake again.
