What happens if my child is made a ward of the court?
When a child becomes a ward of the court, the state now plays a role in supervising the youth. The court will be able to issue orders for you and your child. Depending of the seriousness of the offense, your child may be:
  • Allowed to live in your home under court supervision
  • Placed outside your home in an unlocked or locked facility
The county probation department is responsible for much of the direct supervision of wards of the court.
