If the judge or referee finds that the juvenile is responsible for the alleged crime or crimes, a dispositional hearing will be held to determine what will now happen to the juvenile. There are three general options at the initial dispositional hearing: The court may warn the juvenile and take no further action, place the juvenile on probation, or remove the juvenile from the home. If the juvenile is removed from the home, the court may place the juvenile with a relative, in a foster home, or in a residential placement.

In addition, the court may also order that the juvenile complete community service, pay restitution to any victims, or complete a treatment plan.
