Seeking Expungement For Criminal Records | Strong Defense For A Better Future
An expunction (expungement) is an important tool people can use to clear their criminal records. Many people mistakenly believe that the court clears their criminal records when their cases are dismissed or they are found not guilty; however, there is still ample evidence related to their arrest on their permanent criminal record. An expunction will destroy all evidence related to a case, including public arrest records, court records, fingerprints and computer records.
People seek the expunction (expungement) of their criminal records for a variety of reasons, including:
- They can state that they do not have a criminal record for a crime on a job application
- It improves their ability to obtain/keep professional certificates and licenses
- It will have positive effects on your credit rating and financial status
Can You Seal Your Criminal Record?
Under certain circumstances, you have the right to seal your record, even after a conviction. You can petition the court (with the help of a lawyer) to seal your record after a deferred adjudication for certain cases. If you’re successful, the order will prevent the public from viewing your criminal record related to that specific charge.
