This is the type of question you should ask your who is filing for you. Generally Juvenile offense are not a bar to adjustment, but there are always exceptions. You must have a privileged conversion with an attorney.

Immigration looks for any criminal convictions, arrests, charges, immigration violations, false claims of citizenship, misrepresentations etc. But, not all of that will be a problem. In most cases, for example, juvenile delinquency is not a problem, as it would be if you were an adult and were charged in adult court.

To give you peace of mind, you should talk with the attorney handling your SIJ case.
