Juvenile law encompasses criminal matters involving minors, as well as civil Division of Social Services matters involving abused and neglected minors. Minors who are arrested and convicted for crimes are subject to North Carolina's juvenile justice system, which is different than the adult criminal justice system and is aimed at juvenile delinquency prevention and rehabilitation. A record of juvenile delinquency can have a significant impact on your child's future, including college admissions. If your child has been accused of involvement in a criminal matter, it is essential to seek the advice of a lawyer with experience in the area of juvenile law as soon as possible. For more information about juvenile law and criminal matters, please see the criminal law page of our website.
