Having a criminal record, even if it contains only a few things that happened years ago, can stop you from getting a job, finding a place to live, or even from getting a loan. Your record can come back to haunt you when you least expect it to.
A criminal record can follow you for the rest of your life… unless you do something about it.
Criminal Record Expungement
Expungement refers to the process of making your criminal record disappear. Essentially, it’s erased and is no longer accessible to the public.
Not all crimes can be expunged from your records. Typically, convictions stay on your record—but if you don’t qualify for expungement, you may qualify for criminal record sealing.
Criminal Record Sealing
Criminal record sealing prevents most people from accessing your record. Some government agencies may still be able to see it, but it generally won’t be available to the public.
