Juvenile Court


It is the mission of the Juvenile Court of Spalding County to assist in the rehabilitation, supervision and treatment of all juvenile referred for services. It is the intent of the Court to do what is in the best interest of the children as well as provide the citizens of Spalding County a safer environment.

We confirm our commitment, to the extent of our ability, to all children regardless of their resources. We provide services in a professional, impartial, and supportive environment that is sensitive to the needs and best interest of the child.

We are committed to working cooperatively and professionally with child service organizations in a way that promotes excellence in services to the child and responsiveness to the needs and interest of our community.

The children whose well being is threatened shall be assisted and protected and restored, if possible, as secure, law-abiding members of society. To our community, this means being an efficient and effective judiciary, creating confidence and a sense of security, for the residents of Spalding County.
