Expungement Frequently Asked Questions
• Is it possible to have my record expunged?
Record expungement is possible with a few exceptions. If you have been convicted of a felony or misdemeanor and complied with all conditions of your probation, then you qualify to petition the court to have your case dismissed.
•Will I have to go to court?
Typically, no. Your attorney will usually be able to appear on your behalf through all stages of the proceedings. In the rare instance that you do have to attend a hearing, we will accompany you every step of the way.
• How long does it take to expunge my record?
It depends on the county in which you live, but the process usually takes a few months. In cases where clients are actively seeking employment, we can try to expedite the process.
• What is the filing fee for an expungement?
Filing fees vary depending on the county you live in and whether you were convicted of a misdemeanor or felony. If you are unable to pay, all counties have some type of financial assistance available.
• After my record is expunged, can I answer “no” if I am asked if I have a criminal record?
Yes. This is one of the benefits of obtaining an expungement. However, there are some exceptions. You cannot answer “no” if you:
- Plan to become a peace officer or run for public office
- Want to work for the California Lottery Commission
- Want to apply for a state license
• How will I know that my criminal record was expunged?
You will receive a signed order by a California Superior Court Judge. This will declare that your conviction has been set aside and that your case has been dismissed.
