A Guide to Collateral Consequences of Juvenile Court Involvement in New Jersey

As you move forward with your life after being involved in the juvenile court system, this guide provides information about what obstacles may lay ahead and how to prepare yourself.

The court and police paperwork about your case is called your “juvenile record.” This record can affect your life for years to come. But you can still pursue your goals and build a bright future by understanding the barriers caused by a juvenile record and knowing what to do and where to go to get help.

The road forward may have some challenges — but we hope this guide will show you that progress can be made and there is a community of advocates in New Jersey who are here to help you succeed.
