The Juvenile Law microsite is a collection of educational resources and references relating to juvenile law. Its primary focus is North Carolina law relating to children whose conditions or conduct may become the subject of juvenile court proceedings. The site is designed to assist people who work in the North Carolina juvenile courts and in the state’s child welfare and juvenile justice systems.

The content is categorized into two sections

  • Child Welfare (abuse, neglect, dependency; termination of parental rights; adoptions of minors; judicial waiver of parental consent)
  • Juvenile Justice

You will find navigation bars for each section to your right.
