expunged juvenile record

Anybody had experience w/ USCIS requiring juvenile court records that no longer exist?

We just received a letter from USCIS stating that they can't complete processing of our I600A until they receive "original certified court dispositions" pertaining to DH's arrest as a juvenile (stupid, stupid, stupid - he was with a bunch of guys who shoplifted beer for a party). Young DH turned himself into the juvenile court and agreed to probation. Upon completion of the probation, his record was expunged, so the court has no records.

I just called the court to doublecheck, and sure enough, they have no records. The letter from USCIS says "[i]f the court is unable to provide any of the above listed items for any reasons, you must submit a letter of explanation printed on court letterhead with an original signature."

The best the court says they can do for us is issue a certificate w/ a raised seal indicating that they show no records for DH for a specified number of years. Anybody know if this will do the trick?
