Magistrates have a significant role at the Juvenile Court. Generally, a hearing before a Magistrate is conducted in the same fashion as a hearing before a Judge. Each Magistrate may (1) issue subpoenas; (2) rule on the admissibility of evidence; and (3) place witnesses under oath and examine them.
Magistrates conduct hearings necessary to decide referred matters. Magistrates' decisions are filed with the Clerk, who is required to serve copies on the parties or their attorneys.
The Juvenile Court employs 27 Magistrates. Each of the six Judges has two Magistrates: one who hears delinquency and unruly matters and one who resolves abuse, dependency, and neglect filings.
The Juvenile Court also employs 15 Magistrates who hear cases for multiple Judges. Six of the court Magistrates hear paternity and support matters. Two conduct hearings with respect to juvenile traffic offenders. Six hear private custody cases where there is no children and family services involvement. There is also one Senior Magistrate.
