Maryland law permits a person with a juvenile record to seek to have that record expunged under certain circumstances.

You may be eligible to have your juvenile record expunged – removed from public inspection – if:

  1. A child in need of supervision (CINS) petition or a juvenile delinquency petition was filed concerning you, or
  2. You received a juvenile citation.

Not every person with a juvenile record will be eligible for expungement.  There are specific grounds for expungement.
