Juvenile Record Clearance Policies Overview

  • Most juvenile records should be automatically sealed when you turn 21, unless your case involved a sex offense. You should not have to do anything to get the record sealed.
  • You can submit a request to seal your records before you turn 21 if at least three years have passed since your case was closed, but it is up to the judge whether or not to grant your request.
  • If you were charged with a sex offense, your record can be sealed after you turn 30 if you are no longer required to register. 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 may not be eligible for sealing if you have certain convictions or adjudications on your record.
