Types of Expungements in California

There are two types of expungements available for people with a prior arrest or criminal conviction. In most situations, the process involves clearing an individual’s criminal record. The other type of expungement involves sealing court files and state records, such as the arrest report or conviction information. A clear criminal record is essential for maintaining professional licenses in many fields and securing employment.

The California Expungement Process

In order to have your record expunged, you need to petition the court to dismiss charges or convictions. Being charged with a crime can damage your reputation, even if you are never convicted. The information will come up when a potential employer runs a criminal background check. When you petition for expungement, both criminal charges and convictions can be cleared from your record.

The expungement process requires:

  • Providing a copy of your charges and convictions
  • Filing a petition for expungement
  • Submitting a petition for each charge that you want expunged
  • Attending a court hearing

It is important to understand that not all criminal convictions can be expunged. An experienced attorney can help you navigate the process. Our expungement attorney in Redwood City can evaluate your record to determine if expungement is possible and guide you through the legal process.
