The Juvenile Court is a division of the Riverside Superior Court handling both dependency and delinquency matters. Juvenile Dependency proceedings involve the protection of children who have been or are at risk of being abused, neglected, or abandoned. Juvenile Delinquency proceedings involve children under the age of 18 alleged to have committed a delinquent act, which would be a crime if committed by an adult.
