The Juvenile Court handles offenses concerning minors and most paternity cases specific to Warren County.  Records available to researchers include juvenile delinquency records, custody records, paternity & support cases.  Specific parts of the juvenile delinquency records are accessible but only by written request.  There are some other records created by this court but they are restricted records on a retention schedule, destroyed soon after they are completed.  Records from 1990 and afterwards are still on file at the Juvenile Court Office in the Warren County Probate Court Building.  Records prior to this time are in controlled storage at the Edna L. Bowyer Record Center and Archives in the Lower Level of the Warren County Administration Building.  The first case occurred in 1908.  Juvenile journal book #1 is missing at Archives but book #2 begins in 1926.  It is believed that this division in Warren County developed gradually as the need arose, sometime in the early 1920ís.
