  • Most juvenile records can be expunged after you turn 18 or five years after your case, probation, or commitment ends, whichever occurs last. 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 expungement if you have certain convictions or adjudications on your record or have pending criminal or juvenile charges.   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.
