My child is a runaway or truant, can they go to Juvenile Court for this?

  • Runway and Truancy are considered status offenses. Juveniles cannot be referred to Juvenile Court exclusively for runaway.  For children that are runaways, parents should contact the local police department and have the minor listed as a runaway or missing person so when police come into contact with the minor, they can pick him/her up and bring them home.
  • If a minor is truant from school, parents should contact the local school district for assistance or the Regional Office of Education.

How can juvenile records be expunged or erased?
