What is Criminal Record Expungement or Record Sealing?

Expungement or record sealing is the process of requesting that the courts and/or law enforcement agencies modify, seal or destroy criminal records. The definition, benefits and requirements of expungement or record sealing varies by state. In many instances when a record is expunged or sealed, it cannot be viewed by the public and the applicant does not have to disclose any past criminal activity. Most states offer this relief because it is good public policy to allow deserving people to fully contribute in society.

  • Completion of sentence (incarceration, probation, parole)
  • All fines and restitution paid in full
  • No pending charges or criminal proceedings
  • No intervening convictions
