What Now? A Guide for Kids in Nebraska’s Juvenile Justice System 

As you begin to move forward with your life after being involved in the juvenile court system, this guide provides information about what obstacles lay ahead and how to prepare yourself for them. The court and police paperwork about your case are called your “juvenile record.” This record can affect your life for years to come. But you can still pursue your goals and build a bright future by understanding the challenges caused by a juvenile record and knowing what to do and where to get help. The road forward might be met with challenges — but we hope this guide will show you that progress can be made and there is a community of advocates in Nebraska who are here to help you succeed. This document is compiled by Nebraska's Court Improvement Project.
