How to Apply for an Expungement in the Capitol Region
If you’ve been arrested or convicted of criminal charges, that record could be accessed anytime someone does a background check. This can interfere with your employment or housing and affect your ability to provide the care your family deserves. An expungement, or having your record sealed, is one way to limit the availability of those details and get a second chance.
Submit an Application
Your petition to the court may require you to gather documents from multiple offices or agencies. Turning to a legal professional for advice can save you time and effort, as you might not meet the eligibility requirements for your state.
Attend a Court Hearing if Required
In some jurisdictions, the court will hold a hearing to determine whether to grant your request. Having your attorney accompany you ensures you’re able to make the strongest possible case to have your petition approved, whether you’re seeking to have misdemeanor traffic violations sealed or something more serious like a felony conviction.
Share Your Court Order as Needed
You may need to show your court order to any or all the agencies or offices that have a record of your arrest or conviction. Each of them may have different processes for accepting and completing the request. Legal help can guide you in making sure you contact everyone you need to.
