A juvenile who is arrested in Tennessee will usually face the juvenile justice system. This system is meant to help rehabilitate the juvenile instead of just punishing the juvenile. Sadly, juveniles who find themselves in the juvenile justice system can often face difficulties in school and other aspects of life. Fighting against the charges the juvenile faces can often help to minimize the effects the case has on the juvenile.
We know that the last thing you want to do is to see your child facing legal consequences for delinquent acts. We can help you to learn the options your child has to fight against the charges. We can also help you to learn what might happen as your child's case moves through the juvenile justice system. The juvenile justice system varies from the criminal justice system in several ways.
In some instances, a case might be waived to the adult court. This is often the case when the crime the child is accused of is a serious charge. We can help you learn the options for fighting a waiver since a waiver means that your child faces more serious consequences by having to go through the adult court system.
We understand that you have questions about your child's future. We want to help you get answers to your questions so that you can decide how to handle the case. Whether your child is facing a case in the juvenile justice system or whether the case is being considered for a waiver, we can help you to ensure your child's rights are protected.
