Waiver and Reverse Waiver

Waiver to Adult Court (link to additional information) 
Wis. Stat. § 938.18
For certain offenses, a juvenile court may waive its jurisdiction over a juvenile’s case. If this occurs, a juvenile is waived, or transferred, from the juvenile court to the adult court.

Reverse Waiver (link to additional information) 
Wis. Stat. § 938.183
In addition, the adult court has original jurisdiction over juveniles who are alleged to have committed certain offenses, meaning the case begins in the adult court. In these cases, the juvenile can seek reverse waiver and ask for the case to be heard in juvenile court.
