Courts with Jurisdiction

As of August 1st 2021, Louisiana Act 482 is in effect. This law changes where young people can file for a judicial bypass.

Young people seeking a judicial bypass must now file a petition in the court where you live. The following table provides information for each court in each parish. Before calling the court, you should call or text us for free, confidential assistance at (504) 535-5277. Or complete this form.

If you live in a Parish with a population of less than 10,000, you can go to court in a neighboring Parish. Those Parishes are indicated by * and the neighboring Parishes are listed below.
