Types of cases

The Children’s Court has two divisions:

Family Division

  • Protection and care of children and Department of Human Services matters
  • Intervention orders

Criminal Division

  • Criminal offending by children

Where are the Children’s Courts?

The Children’s Court sits at Morwell, Bairnsdale, Sale, Melbourne and South Gippsland. Daniel Taylor Lawyers can appear for you or your child at each of these courts. We represent Children in Criminal matters and Welfare matters, and Adults involved in DHHS proceedings.

Child Representation

Going to court as a child is a very daunting and it is very important you seek a lawyer as soon as possible to help you through the process.

A social worker from the Department of Human Services may have instigated court proceedings under the Family division of the Children’s Court if they believe you are at risk of serious harm.

Daniel Taylor can explain the process, your choices and help negotiate with your parents and the protection workers.
