CA Law - Petition for Sealing of Juvenile Records

California Welfare and Institutions Code Section 781 allows those with juvenile records to petition to have those records sealed. In order to be eligible to seal your juvenile records you must meet the following criteria:

  • You are 18 years old OR the juvenile court’s jurisdiction ended at least 5 years ago (whichever happens first)
  • You do not have any misdemeanor or felony convictions for what is considered a crime of moral turpitude.
  • You must have no pending charges or litigation against you
  • The court must be convinced that you are rehabilitated.
  • You will not be eligible if after you turned 14 years old you were convicted of an offense listed in California Welfare and Institutions Code 707(b). This is a long list that includes (but is not limited to) murder, arson, robbery, rape, kidnapping, certain sex offenses, carjacking, certain firearm offenses, torture and other violent felonies.

Also pursuant to California Penal Code Section 851.7 if you were arrested while you were a juvenile but there were no court proceedings and you were not convicted, you may petition the court in the jurisdiction where the arrest occurred to have those arrest records sealed.

Benefits of Having Your Juvenile Record Sealed

What is included in your juvenile record? All records that relate to your juvenile arrest and conviction are a part of your juvenile record. Arrest reports held by the police, rulings and findings by the judge, and exhibits held by the court and district attorney and any probation reports held by the probation department are all part of your juvenile record. As stated above these records can show up in background checks and negatively affect you.

If you have your juvenile record sealed it will be like it never existed. If anyone asks the district attorney, court or probation department about them, they must answer that they have no record of it. You can legally say you were not arrested or adjudicated. Having your juvenile record sealed will therefore enable you to have a fresh start.

CA Juvenile Record Sealing Process

Due to the sensitivity of juvenile records the majority of the juvenile record sealing cases in California take about ten to eleven months. We have done thousands of record sealing cases and we have a 97% success rate in California, so you can be sure will do a great job for you.

Remember, each juvenile record sealing case we do is different. If more time has passed since you were adjudicated we may be able to show the court more positive accomplishments you have achieved over the years and have an even better change at succeeding.

For our California Juvenile Record Sealing service we charge one low flat-fee that we back up with a price match guarantee because we are sure we offer great service at affordable prices. Also we can break up that fee into no-interest payments so that you can get started right away.

What do we do to get your record sealed? First we gather facts and research for your case so that we can make sure we do your petition right the first time. Then we will compose and file your petition at the right court. If the DA opposes, we will respond.

Finally, if a hearing is scheduled we have one of our top attorneys attend and enthusiastically advocate for you. You probably will not have to appear in court yourself. You can track your case online using our state of the art case management system.
