Do you have a criminal record you’d like to expunge? First, not all criminal convictions can be expunged, and state laws vary about when and how your record may be expunged. A common myth is that arrest and conviction records are automatically expunged or sealed after a certain number of years. However, you must usually apply for the expungement in writing from the court where the conviction was recorded. If you wonder about whether you qualify for an expungement, don’t delay, contact a qualified expungement lawyer today to get started with your application. Even if you do not qualify, there may be other options that may help you. Contact a criminal lawyer in your area to find out what options are available to you.
