County Assistance in Matters of Child Abuse, Neglect & Dependency

Delaware County Juvenile Court serves the needs of children by working with the Delaware County Department of Jobs and Family Services (DCDJFS) and other child based service organizations.


The DCDJFS receives information regarding the status of children and sends an intake worker to investigate and gather facts. If there is sufficient evidence to remove the child(ren) or request protective supervision then this Court takes the necessary steps to insure children’s safety.
