All juvenile charges issued in Essex County are handled in Newark NJ at the Superior Court. What this means is that whether your child’s offense originated in Livingston, Bloomfield, Cedar Grove, Millburn, West Orange or another municipality, it will be sent to the Juvenile Part in Newark for resolution. The reason is because no other court possesses jurisdiction to decide a case involving allegations of a crime or disorderly persons offense against someone under 18 years of age.
If you are in need of representation because your child was arrested and charged with a criminal offense, an attorney in our Newark Office is ready to discuss your options in a free initial consultation. We can be reached anytime 24/7 by calling 973-710-1520.
