Unlike juvenile justice or status offender proceedings (where the principal focus is on the conduct of the minor), dependency proceedings are to ensure the safety and well-being of the minor. If Juvenile Court jurisdiction is established, the court will then determine whether the minor should be removed from the parent's custody and, if so, what placement would be most appropriate for the minor's needs.
Transfer In cases are to be heard in the Dependency court:
Tuesdays at 9:00 a.m. in Department 10.
