Welcome to Hamilton County Juvenile Court

Hamilton County Juvenile Court mural paintingHamilton County Juvenile Court in Cincinnati, Ohio is responsible for providing quality services for the positive development of our children, the safety of our communities and the preservation of our families. Our judges and magistrates decide cases with children as the subject of legal complaints. Those cases include:

  • Delinquency (Criminal) Cases
  • Dependency Cases
  • Custody Cases
  • Child Support Cases

Numerous community stakeholders and agencies give their time and expertise to enhance the lives of Court-involved youth, connecting them to services and supports as well as educational and developmental opportunities.

Hamilton County Juvenile Court does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, gender, disability or age in the delivery of services.

Artwork featured on this website was created by Youth Center residents under the direction of Cincinnati Public Schools Art Teacher Penelope Harris and Patricia Clark Roper, with students from Heritage Hill School.
