Welcome to the Children's Court of Western Australia
We deal with offences alleged to have been committed by young people aged 10 to 17 years. The court also deals with protection and care applications and restraining order applications. These are for children under the age of 18 years.
The Perth Children's Court is located at 160 Pier Street in Perth. Children's Court cases are also heard in other courthouses throughout the State.

Protection and Care Proceedings
Children who have suffered, or are likely to suffer harm as a result of neglect or abuse.
A restraining order is an order used by the court to protect a person in an unwanted situation.
