What Types of Criminal Records Can be Expunged?

In this article, our Chicago criminal record expungement attorneys discuss the types of records that can be expunged from a criminal record. Expungement is the process of having your criminal records physically destroyed or returned to you and of removing the record from public view.  On the other hand, if your records are sealed, they are not physically destroyed.  However, sealed records are not obtainable without a court order and are removed from public view.  Neither expunged or sealed records are visible in criminal checks.  Employers may not consider expunged or sealed records in determining employment and may not ask an applicant if he or she has had records expunged or sealed. ​

Correcting Criminal Records in Chicago

In this article, our Chicago expungement attorneys explain how to correct errors on your criminal record in Illinois. The Illinois Access and Review Process allows people to request to review both their state and FBI criminal records and challenge any portions of the record that they believe to be erroneous. In order to request a correction or modification of your Illinois criminal record, you should fill out the Record Challenge form that is received from the Illinois State Police after submitting an Access and Review request and send it to the Illinois State Police.  The Illinois state police does not charge a fee for record challenges or access and review requests, but the local enforcement agency may charge a small fee for processing requests.
