  • Most juvenile records can be expunged two years after your case closes. You have to submit a request to the court to start the process, and it is up to the judge whether or not to grant your request.
You cannot get your record expunged if you have an adult felony or misdemeanor conviction, or have a pending felony, misdemeanor, or juvenile case. Find a Lawyer If you think you might be eligible to have your record expunged, find a lawyer who may be able to help you. Some lawyers might help you for free, although you may still need to pay a fee to file the paperwork in court.
