How To Seal Your Criminal Record

June 10, 2019

A criminal record can be demeaning in a person’s life since it can follow the person for an entire lifetime where it can affect in his/her ability in finding a job or even continuing with education or even on signing a lease. If the criminal case does not result in a conviction, the record of the arrest or the criminal prosecution still remains. It is possible that the criminal records of the person can be sealed which implies that no one can view the contents of the file without the court order.

Each of the states has its own rules when it comes to record sealing where it specifies which of the convictions qualify and which of the defendant can apply and also of the various circumstances where the seal records might be accessed, for example, when applying for certain jobs. It should be noted that in general, the relatively low-level criminal offenses can qualify and also the first time offenders.
