How Does Expungement Work?
The expungement or record sealing process involves a court proceeding in which a criminal record may be removed (or sealed) from the court documentary history and therefore removed from future background checks. The court procedure for expungement and/or record sealing varies from state to state.
Step 1: Generally the first step in applying for expungement is to gather all of the factual information and retrieving all of the relevant documentation concerning the original case. The best first step is often to call the Clerk for the Superior Court for the county in which you were arrested and/or convicted and request a copy of your arrest and/or conviction records. Review your case and then use our quick, expungement eligibility check.
Step 2: You will need to submit specific court filings and certain applications in the state jurisdiction for your case in order to request the court to initiate a review process of your case for expungement or have your record sealed.
