RecordGone.com has helped thousands of people just like you seal their juvenile records, and we want to help you!
Juvenile records show as part of your criminal history and they can cost you job opportunities, cause you embarrassment and have other harmful effects. California allows for the sealing of juvenile records, which will allow you to avoid these harmful consequences.
Discover now if you are entitled to have your CA juvenile record sealed or are eligible for one of our other record clearing services by taking a few minutes to complete this free and confidential evaluation.
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:
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.
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.
