Must I see a Probation Officer to gain access to the Family Court?
Yes. In order to gain entry to Family Court one must file a petition. Probation Officers conduct both adult and juvenile Intake for the Family Court and prepare adult petitions for the court. Matters involving Juvenile Delinquency and PINS behaviors are provided Diversion Adjustment Services whenever suitable. When necessary, Probation Officers prepare PINS petitions for the Family Court. Juvenile Delinquency matters requiring a petition to the Family Court are prepared by the Office of the County Attorney. In Westchester, Intake Services are located in White Plains, New Rochelle and Yonkers.
