You will not need to appear in Court in most cases. We have expunged a large number of San Diego criminal matters in all courts throughout the county, As well as representing criminal clients over the past 25+ years in cases ranging from DUI matters to serious felonies.
Both misdemeanor and felony convictions can usually be expunged. Once relief has been granted, you can honestly answer "no" to a question regarding criminal convictions in many circumstances. Contrary to popular belief, records are not expunged automatically with the passage of time, but require the filing and granting of a Petition for relief in Court.
Please give us a call to discuss your case; consultation is free. 800 495-2819.
A California criminal expungement is a legal process that petitions the Court to review a conviction to determine:
- If probation was successfully completed, or, if no probation was granted, a year has passed since the conviction;
- That all fines, restitution and reimbursement ordered by the court has been paid;
- That the petitioner is not now on probation for another offense;
- That the petitioner has no new pending cases;
The Court then allows the petitioner to withdraw their plea or finding of guilt, enter a new "not guilty" plea, and orders the case dismissed.
You will receive a copy of the Court Order when your case is complete. The procedure can take from 8 weeks to several months, depending upon the Court, the complexity of the case, and how old the conviction is.
