We can Help you with:


  1.     Probate court is the appropriate court when the juvenile lives with neither parent when under 18 or when they live with one parent and are between 18-21.
  2.     Family court is when the juvenile lives with one parent and is under the age of 18.

Yes, the Court processes will be different depending on whether the Court is Probate or in Family Court.  Additionally, the location of the Court will also affect the length of the process and how many proceedings you will attend.

Appearance in the state court can be a matter of minutes to maybe up to 15 minutes.

  1. Confirm you identities
  2. Confirm that all parties have been notified
  3. They potentially could ask questions as to the basis of your claim, whether your declaration was true and correct.
