Juvenile Dependency

As mandated by Florida Law, we cannot give out any information over the phone or on the Internet about any juvenile case. To view the court file, the authorized person must appear in person with a proper picture I.D.

Dependency cases are established when children have been abused, abandoned, or neglected.
