  • Most juvenile records can be sealed one year after your case is dismissed or closed. 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.
  • Some juvenile records that are not confidential by law can be expunged after you turn 21. 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 or expungement if you have certain convictions or adjudications on your record or have pending criminal or juvenile charges.
