Can I get my criminal record sealed?
Certain offenses or convictions can cause a permanent mark on your criminal record. This can follow you around for years, affecting your future employment, housing, and education, as well as affecting your reputation. The expungement process can be used to seal your record from background searches and other public records. After one year has passed from the date of your conviction, you may be able to have certain crimes expunged from your record as if they legally did not happen. In other cases it may take as long as five years or more to seal a record. In some cases, the law does not allow a record to be sealed.
