In Georgia, Juvenile Court is an umbrella for dependency, delinquency, and CHINS. Dependency includes DFCS and private non-DFCS custody cases. Delinquency covers children 16 and under charged with a crime. CHINS is a name for cases where a child is in need of services but whose case does not rise to the level of DFCS involvement.
