Family Court handles many different kinds of cases, include the following:

  • Juvenile delinquency
  • Child support
  • Spousal support
  • Paternity
  • Termination of parental rights
  • Adoption
  • Custody
  • Guardianship
  • Visitation
  • Persons (juveniles) in need of supervision
  • Family offenses and orders of protection
  • Child protective (abuse and neglect)

Each of these cases is different with different rules and procedures. For instance, in some proceedings hearsay evidence is admissible, in some cases it is not. In some cases parties are entitled to emergency hearings. The guiding principle in most Family Court cases is that the court is family and child centered, and it is the best interest of the child that is paramount.
