  • If you were found not delinquent (not guilty) by the judge, your record can be expunged at any time. 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 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.
