The Cherokee County Juvenile Court is dedicated to serving the residents of Cherokee County by hearing all cases involving allegations of dependency of children under the age of eighteen, delinquency and traffic violations concerning children under the age of seventeen, and Children in Need of Services cases found within its jurisdictions. If, after adjudication, a child is found to be in need of treatment, rehabilitation or supervision to safely remain in the community, the court will provide access to the best quality, appropriate treatment programs available.
The mission of the Cherokee County Juvenile Court is to ensure that children, families, and the community are protected in civil and delinquency matters brought before the Court. Children and families are provided guidance and services that will be specifically designed to rehabilitate, strengthen and restore them to become productive members of the community. The Court strives to meet this mission by utilizing resources within the community that promote accountability, provide positive alternatives, and reunify the family when in the best interest of the child.
