What is an expungement?

The most popular service our law firm offers is criminal record expungement. Each state defines “expungement” in its own way, but generally an expungement will result in the removal of criminal records from the general view of the public. In some states like Texas this means the total destruction of the record, while in states like California it can mean a finding of guilt has been removed from the record and your case has been dismissed. Typically, you can then legally say that you’ve never been convicted or plead guilty to a crime. In other words, an expungement, for most purposes,allows you to treat the offense as if it never occurred.

Not all criminal records qualify for expungement, and each state has vastly different requirements to qualify. These rules can be very complex, so we encourage you to contact our experienced attorneys to see if you qualify for expungement—we are happy to provide a free consultation to discuss what your options are in clearing up your record.

WipeRecord’s mission is to empower Americans being held back in life by mistakes they have already paid the price for. Unless you do something about it, arrests and convictions will remain on your criminal record forever. This can make things very difficult with potential employers, landlords, lenders, and anybody interested in your past. We think that this is unjust, which is why we fight so hard to put our client’s mistakes behind them.

Don’t let your past dictate your future. Expunge your record and move forward in life.

The expungement process can vary quite a bit by state, but the process typically involves the following:

  • WipeRecord’s attorneys attending a court hearing on your behalf to deal with objections from the prosecutor and answer questions from the judge;
  • WipeRecord’s attorneys obtaining a court order from the judge to expunge your records;
  • WipeRecord’s attorneys then enforcing that expungement order on government agencies and private background check databases.
