Juvenile Dependency

The Clerk’s Juvenile Dependency section processes records relating to cases that are established when children have been abused, abandoned, or neglected. Dependency records are confidential. The only parties who may inspect a juvenile file without a court order are the child, the parents and their attorneys, the guardian ad litem, law enforcement agencies, and the Department of Children and Families and its designees. To view the court file, the authorized person must appear in person with a proper picture I.D.
