OFFICIAL COURT BUSINESS IS NOT CONDUCTED VIA THIS WEBSITE. IT IS STILL NECESSARY TO CONTACT THE COURT BY PHONE OR APPEAR IN PERSON.
No Legal Advice from Judges and Court Staff: State law and ethical rules prohibit judges and court employees from giving legal advice to the public. This means that judges and staff cannot advise people on whether to bring problems to the court, what remedies they should seek, and the proper course of action. The purpose of this restriction is to protect the public by ensuring that:
Judges and court employees do not use their position to give an individual an unfair advantage in court.
Individuals do not rely on information that may prove incorrect or inconsistent with court rules or law and is detrimental to their case.
Jefferson Parish Juvenile Court staff may explain basic court procedures and answer questions about deadlines, but cannot and will not give any type of legal advice.
