A juvenile record can be a barrier to employment, education, and housing. Luckily, juvenile records can be erased through the erasure process. However, while the majority of juvenile records can be erased, few people know about or take advantage of the opportunity. This website seeks to clarify juvenile erasure, with the hope of more people getting their records erased!
