Our firm understands the difference this can make for your future. That's why we help you navigate each step of the process, gathering relevant information to present your petition in the best possible light.
Record Sealing VS. Expungement
If you committed a crime as a juvenile, state law allows you to petition for expungement of your criminal history. If a court accepts your petition, all records related to your criminal conviction would be destroyed. You would no longer have to claim any record of criminal involvement on job applications or other legal forms. If you were convicted of a misdemeanor or felony as an adult, under certain circumstances, state law allows records related to your criminal conviction to be sealed, or made unavailable to the general public. You would also have the freedom to leave information related to your conviction off of job applications and other forms.
To take advantage of record sealing, individuals typically have to wait 10 years from the time of their conviction. Eligible individuals are those who had charges against them dismissed, who were acquitted of a crime, who were only arrested (not charged in court), or who reached a plea bargain agreement resulting in the dismissal of their case.
