In this article our Illinois expungement lawyers explain the difference between expungement and sealing of a criminal record. When a criminal record is expunged, the records relating the expunged charges are actually destroyed. When a record is sealed, the record is hidden from public view but is still obtainable with a court order. Employers are not allowed to ask about either expunged or sealed records. Some records that are not eligible for expungement may be eligible for sealing.
Illinois expungement lawyer Kevin O'Flaherty explains the rights you have if you are arrested in Illinois.
In this article, our Illinois expungement lawyers explain the types of records that can be expunged. In order to be eligible to have your criminal record expunged, you must have never been convicted of a criminal offense. Therefore the charge that you are seeking to have expunged must have ended in acquittal, dismissal, or release without being charged; a vacated or reversed conviction; court supervision; or qualified probation. We explain the definition of qualified probation for the purposes of expungement and some charges that cannot be expunged even if they did not result in conviction.
In this article, our Illinois expungement lawyers explain the sealing of criminal records. If you are convicted of certain offenses, you will not be eligible for expungement, but your records may be sealed. The general rule is that sealing is only available for misdemeanor offenses, but sealing is also available for certain felonies, which we list in the article. We explain the waiting period for sealing and expunging criminal records as well as how to expunge or seal your criminal records.
