How Expundgements Work?
How Can I Remove An Arrest Record From My Court File?
If you have a court or criminal record that you would like expunged or sealed from your public file, then you must file a petition with the local district court where the record resides. To have a record expunged means you would like the record destroyed or removed from the court file forever. To have your record sealed means your record won’t be available for public view, but, court and legal officials can still request the right to review your sealed records at any time. Note: some criminal acts can't be expunged from your record if you are found guilty. Unlike your credit report, arrest records do not expire. They stay with you indefinitely unless you’re able to remove them from your file.
To get a warrant removed be aware there’s a paperwork process and a waiting period involved. Each state and court district varies with respect to process and fees, so you will have to contact the local courthouse for more information. If you’re not sure where the record resides, you can use a nationwide online search system such as www.arrestwarrantrecords.com to find out and discover additional details about a person's criminal history. If the individual's court record is of a criminal nature and the person was found guilty of a crime or has many offenses on file, then it is best to seek the advice of legal counsel, as the court has the right to deny your petition. In cases where the individual was found not guilty or the case was dismissed and the individual has stated good reason for petitioning the request (such that it will affect future employment, security clearance, ability to be bonded, etc.), then the motion to seal the record will almost always be granted by the court. However, since there is a legal process involved it’s best to seek the guidance and advice of legal counsel to avoid delays, error, or refusal.
If a minor has committed a crime and the individual was between the ages of 7and 17 when the crime took place, it’s filed as a juvenile record with the courts. In many cases the judge will allow and order the record to be expunged upon the individual turning 18 years of age if he or she has demonstrated good behavior for a specific period of time. However, if the offense was of a criminal nature and the record wasn’t given any consideration by the court then the record will remain on file. If you’re not sure if the record is still on public file you can use a confidential nationwide online search system such as www.arrestwarrantrecords.com to run a background check. It’s also advised you contact the district court where the record resides to complete your due diligence.
