EXPUNGEMENT – WHAT IS IT?

An expungement is also called a sealing of a criminal record and is a short, legal process that can clear someone’s criminal past from an individual’s record. The process starts when an action is filed with the court where the conviction took place and a formal request is made of the court to dismiss, or set aside, the criminal conviction. An expungement process applies to most misdemeanor and minor felony convictions. Serious felonies require alternative ways to set aside the conviction aside.

NOTE: NOT ALL CRIMINAL CONVICTIONS CAN BE EXPUNGED!
