An expungement can “erase” an arrest or conviction from your record.
Expungement refers to a court-ordered process that occurs when the legal record of either a criminal conviction or arrest is erased before the eyes of the law. When a conviction is expunged, rather than just an arrest, the process may be referred to as “setting aside a criminal conviction.”
Several factors impact whether an arrest or conviction can be expunged from a person’s record, and for some crimes and in some jurisdictions in Charlotte, North Carolina, expungement is not always possible. Factors that affect expungements include the nature of the crime, how much time has passed since the arrest or conviction, your personal criminal history and age. At GPS Law Group, we can inform you of whether expungement for a crime is an option, and if it is, what needs to happen next for the expungement process to proceed.
