Has Your Child Been Charged With Delinquency, Being Unruly or With a Misdemeanor? What Happens Now?
In Georgia the “Juvenile Court Code” has established separate juvenile courts that hear the cases involving children. The Courts will hear cases that deal with determining if a child is delinquent, unruly, truant, in violation of curfew laws, or with cases that may be determined to be a misdemeanor in the eyes of the law.

In Georgia delinquency proceedings, the court can officially declare a child a juvenile delinquent, which means that a minor has been convicted in the juvenile court system of something that would be considered a crime if it was tried in an adult court. However, if the offense is considered serious enough, the minor who is 13 years of age or older, can be transferred to a Superior Court and tried as an adult.
