Juvenile Delinquency

A Juvenile Delinquency case is initiated when a minor has committed or is suspected of having committed a crime. The Clerk's Juvenile Delinquency division performs various functions such as processing documents for cases where a child has been charged with committing a crime.

Due to strict confidentiality laws regarding juvenile cases, information can only be made available to the juvenile, parent or guardian, attorney for parent or child and select government officials with valid photo identification. Case information cannot be provided over the telephone.

Paying Juvenile Case Fines & Fees

If your juvenile case resulted in the assessment of fines, fees and/or restitution, you can make payments in person at the Clerk’s Office, via mail or by phone. Make sure you reference the case number when sending any payment.

The Clerk's Office accepts cash, personal checks, money orders, traveler's checks, and credit cards. Credit card payments will incur an additional 3.5% service charge on the payment.

Restitution payments require an additional $3.50 per payment restitution fee.

Pursuant to Florida Statutes 39.0132(3), 985.045(2) and 984.06(3), all Juvenile records (delinquency and dependency) are confidential.
