Children's Court of Victoria
477 Little Lonsdale Street, Melbourne
The Children’s Court handles cases involving children and young people under the age of 18. It has two divisions: the Family Division and the Criminal Division.
The Family Division deals with matters relating to the care and protection of children and young people at risk, as well as applications for intervention orders. The Children’s Court is separate from the The Family Court (a federal court). The Family Court deals with divorce and other related matters, such as the distribution of property and access to children.
