Juvenile Record Clearance Policies Overview

  • Most juvenile records can be expunged after you turn 18. 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 felony convictions or adjudications on your record or have pending criminal or juvenile charges for a felony.
  • If you were not adjudicated (not found guilty), your record should be automatically sealed. You should not have to do anything to get your record sealed.
  • The record of a minor admitted to a diversion program or granted a deferral can be expunged, so long as rehabilitation of the petitioner has been attained to the satisfaction of the court or the prosecuting attorney.
  • Records relating to a matter that ended with a declined prosecution, dismissal, or acquittal can be expunged, so long as rehabilitation of the petitioner has been attained to the satisfaction of the court or the prosecuting attorney.
