What is a record expungement?
A record expungement is when your criminal record is cleaned from past misdemeanor or felony convictions. An expungement will not result in clearing your record in the criminal justice system. However, what an expungement will do is take your past convictions off of your record for employment (in many cases) and school purposes. With a successful expungement, you can truthfully answer that you do not have any convictions on your record. The exception to the employment clearing is that a person with a successful expungement can still be barred from many state licensing positions. For example, a record, though cleaned, will still show to any teaching, nursing, or law enforcement licensing agency. It is important that you discuss all employment goals and current/anticipated state licenses with a competent attorney so you know what to expect.
How do I get a record expungement?
To get a record expungement, you need to file a motion with the court. It is best that you hire an attorney for the expungement process, as the motion to be written can be tricky. The expungement motion, once filed, will then be argued in court.
