Inclement weather policy:  The court will follow the FWISD inclement weather closure policy.  For any settings that are scheduled during times when the FWISD is closed due to weather, the Court will grant the parties and attorneys an excuse for not appearing and an automatic continuance if permissible.  Attorneys must call the court promptly to discuss any necessary arrangements.

This policy will replace any previous policy for this court.  (1/19/2019)

Juvenile court proceedings are separated into two parts: the adjudication hearing and the disposition hearing.
