Intake Services


The Intake Office of the Court Services Unit is where all family or juvenile civil complaints initiate such as child custody and visitation, support, child, and family protective orders, as well as CHINS. Law enforcement petitions for juveniles involved in criminal matters also generate from Intake. Read below to learn more about how to start any of these petitions. 

The Intake Office is located on the 4th floor of the Arlington Courthouse building and it’s open Monday through Friday, from 8:30 A.M. to 5:00 P.M.
