In this post, I will explain what an expungement is, clarify what sort of offenses cannot be expunged, how can you utilize expungements for your benefit, and hwy it is better to proceed with an attorney by your side rather than pursue the matter on your own.
Let's start at the beginning. What is an expungement? Very simply, if you were charged with a crime or a certain traffic offense, it will appear on your permanent criminal record. It does not matter if the charges were later dropped, dismissed, or if you were convicted. Nor does it matter the amount of time that has passed since the offense has occurred.
