Judge Michael Offner with party-goer at National Adoption Day in Hastings.
National Adoption Day -- Where children become what they already know they are in their heart -- a family.
NEBRASKA has three separate juvenile courts located in Douglas, Lancaster, and Sarpy counties. In the remaining counties, juvenile matters are heard in the county courts. Separate juvenile courts are courts of record and handle matters involving neglected, dependent, and delinquent children. The separate juvenile courts also have jurisdiction in domestic relations cases where the care, support, or custody of minor children is at issue. The three separate juvenile courts have the same jurisdiction and employ the same procedures as the county courts acting as juvenile courts.
