As a juvenile the record should not have an impact on your immigration status unless you were charged and sentenced as an adult.
I have 33 years experience and practice immigration law only. My answer to your question is general in nature and not to be construed as legal advise or as establishing an attorney-client relationship. For additional discussion regarding your personal situation a scheduled consultation is required.
