Riverside Expungement Attorney

What Is Expungement?

Expungement is a process by which your history is cleared of criminal charges for adult and juvenile crimes that may affect your ability to get a job, obtain a loan, rent an apartment, or attend certain educational institutions. Once your criminal conviction has been expunged, you can honestly answer "No" if an employer asks you if you have ever been convicted of a crime.

The expungement process can be complex. If you are seeking to have your record expunged so that you will no longer have to disclose your criminal record on an employment application, or for other similar reasons, a highly experienced Riverside defense lawyer can help you get your criminal record expunged. Our experienced in expungements allows us to assist you in getting your record expunged in a timely manner if you qualify. Once you have successfully completed the terms of your probation, we can request that your criminal conviction be dismissed. The judge will reopen your case, and allow you to withdraw your plea of guilty or no contest and enter a plea of not guilty. He can then set aside and dismiss the conviction, and your record will now show that the charges have been dismissed.

Qualifications for Expungement

Expungement may be available for a conviction where you have served your period of probation and complied with the terms of probation. Your attorney will then file a petition with the court to expunge the record. If the charge is one that qualifies for expungement and all conditions of probation have been met, the judge will approve the expungement. If you made some mistakes during your probation period, your attorney can argue on your behalf that you substantially complied with probation requirements and that the expungement should be granted nonetheless. If your probation period is not yet up, your attorney may petition the court for an early termination of the probation. This will then qualify you to seek expungement.
