Record Sealing Information
If you went to court when you were a juvenile, you may be able to get the record sealed. This includes records held by law enforcement, the district attorney, probation, and the courts. When the court orders your records sealed, it means that the offense that brought you to court no longer exists by law and you can legally and truthfully say you do not have a criminal record when asked about your criminal history (there may be an exception to this if you want to join the military or get a federal security clearance).
In some cases, the court will automatically order your records sealed. In others, you must file a petition asking the court to seal your records.
Less serious cases dismissed after January 1, 2015
If your case is dismissed by the juvenile court after January 1, 2015 and you were NOT found to have committed an offense listed in Welfare and Institutions Code section 707(b) you do not need to ask the court to seal your records because the court will do it automatically. If you complete your probation successfully and the court finds that you did, the court must dismiss your case. If the court does not find that you have satisfactorily completed your probation, it may not dismiss you case and will not seal your records automatically. If you want to have your records sealed in this situation, you will need to ask the court to seal your records.
If you are not sure if you qualify to seal your records or if you have other questions, talk to a lawyer.
