Accessing juvenile court records
Q: I need to find a law to access juvenile court records. Could you help me?
A: Generally speaking, juvenile court records are confidential except as to certain law enforcement and court personnel, or the parents and guardian of the minor. Other persons can get access to documents only with permission of the court. You would have to file a petition to do this. You haven’t disclosed your relationship to the records or at issue or the nature of the litigation in which you are involved, but I would suggest you have your attorneys in the litigation file appropriate petitions with the court.
