The objective of this article is to inquire about the ways through which the judiciary develops different interventions that, taking as explicit goal the "protection" of boys and girls, are also oriented at administering and normalizing their families. To such end, we focused our analysis on court records reviewed at a juvenile and family court, with the purpose of describing the resolutions and measures adopted, and of analyzing the scheme of relationships and interactions produced between the court clerks, administrative agents and the children's relatives, given that it is from them that we can configure and outline the different possible solutions. Collection of solutions that will be offered or imposed and that will vary throughout the judicial process, with which the formation of a "family order" is sought, either by preserving the relationship of the children with their family of origin or by orienting them towards adoption.
