A California 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, enters a "not guilty" plea, and orders the case dismissed. This means you can answer "No" to a question regarding convictions under many circumstances.
The Expungement law is somewhat complex in certain areas, but expungement of a record is something that should be done by anyone with even a minor history of arrest or conviction.
Even if probation violations occurred, a case can in some circumstances still be expunged.
