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.
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.
