Clear Juvenile Records
San Diego Expungement Attorneys
Your Juvenile Record does not disappear when you turn 18.
Your record is open and available to anyone that’s looking, unless you ask the court to restore your good name. The good news is that you can completely seal and physically destroy your juvenile record with court approval. You can’t do that for adult expungements!
Basic Info on Expunging Juvenile Records
Courts allow two forms of Juvenile post-conviction relief. You can either (1) Set Aside Your Juvenile Record, or you can (2) request the court to Seal and Destroy Your Juvenile Record. Normally the best option is to Seal and Destroy, but if the court does not allow it for some reason you can then ask that they Set Aside your conviction.
Because a hearing is required for both post-conviction options, the best chance you have of getting your relief is to have a good attorney on your side. The attorneys at The Hullinger Firm know what to argue in front of the judge, and will take care of you through every phase until your good name has been restored. Our services are affordable, and we customize payment options to your needs.
Expunging a criminal record is ideal for anyone that has been:
- Denied Work Because of a Criminal Record
- Denied State Licensure (eg medical board, real estate or contractor’s license)
- Denied Position or Seat on a Professional Organization
- Ending PC 290 Sex Offender Registration only if your conviction was solely based in juvenile court
- Facing Immigration Deportation
- Looking for Closure on Past Mistakes
What Does an Expungement Do?
If you have a juvenile record, you can gain a lot from an expungement. A juvenile expungement is different than an adult expungement in that one of your options is to actually get to have your juvenile record Sealed and Destroyed. This means you can legally deny that you were ever arrested, charged, or convicted. The court contacts all agencies that would have your record, and orders them to destroy their own reference copies as well.
In some case, the court will deny a full expungement, but allow your conviction to be Set Aside, which allows you to change your previously entered Guilty conviction to Not Guilty..
