CALIFORNIA JUVENILE APPEALS

 

Right to Juvenile Rehearing

Your child has a right to apply to the Juvenile Court to request a rehearing of his or her matter if this is done no later than 10 days after the Clerk's Office mails the written copy of the finding and order that was made by the referee or commissioner. This application for rehearing must be received by the Juvenile Court within 10 days. An application for rehearing of a matter heard by the commissioner or referee may be made in person at the office of the County Clerk of the Juvenile Court.

The Juvenile Judge must read and consider transcripts of the Juvenile Court proceedings within 20 days or up to 45 days for good cause delays, or rehearing is granted as a matter of right.

The application may be made by written motion or letter brief to the Presiding Judge of the Juvenile court requesting a rehearing and shall contain specfic reasons you feel that this should be considered.

Notice of Right to Appeal

If your case has been heard by a judge or a judge has denied your request for rehearing, you have the right to appeal to the Appellate Courts from the findings and orders of this court. You must file your notice of Appeal within 60 days from the time of the final order, or 30 days from the date of mailing of notification of denial of rehearing, whichever is greater. The Notice of Appeal must be filed in the juvenile court and not the Court of Appeal. Your notice must clearly state you are appealing, what it is you are appealing from, whether you appealing the entire order or just part of it. The notice of appeal must be signed by your child and his or her attorney.
