County Courts at Law No. 1 of Fort Bend County sit as a designated juvenile court. Juvenile courts decide matters involving adolescents who have not attained the age of majority. Matters handled by the juvenile courts include juvenile delinquency and issues involving children in need of supervision. Juvenile court hearings take place via Zoom or inside the courtroom and are formal proceedings.
Juvenile adjudication, disposition and status hearings are heard on designated Mondays and Wednesdays. Trials are heard on days designated as Jury Trial Dockets. All other hearings are set at the Court’s convenience.
Unless prior permission has been obtained, detention hearings are heard by Associate Lewis White. Juvenile detention hearings are heard at the Legion Drive Annex on Mondays at 1:30 P.M., on Wednesdays at 1:00 P.M., and on Thursdays at 9:00 A.M.

In accordance with the County Courts at Law’s recent policy changes regarding attorney fee vouchers, all attorneys will continue to utilize paper fee vouchers in juvenile matters. The fee voucher is to be sworn and filed with the Fort Bend County Clerk’s Office.
