Van Nuys Expungement Attorney
Clearing Your Criminal Record
Expungement refers to the legal process of clearing a conviction from one’s criminal record. Through expungement, a criminal conviction is effectively dismissed by the court. The guilty plea, guilty verdict, or no contest plea is set aside and the case is dismissed, meaning that the record is essentially cleared and the defendant can move on with his or her life with a clean record and conscience.
Expungement does not physically destroy one’s criminal record, and even expunged convictions may be viewed in certain specific situations. However, public record will no longer hold evidence of a conviction and any standard background search conducted for employment purposes or financial reasons will turn up a record free from that conviction which has been expunged. Your criminal record contains information about all arrests and convictions. If you do not have a conviction on your record but are still interested in getting an arrest and case off your record, an attorney may be able to help you by filing a Petition for Factual Innocence.
