re court-ordered processes in which a criminal conviction is erased in the eyes of the law. However, each state handles criminal expungements differently.
In particular, here are two definitions that are good to know, and to understand fully:
- Under sealed
With this in mind, these are the two most used words people are confused about.
Hence, this is why I am going to explain them further…please scroll down to read the following…
Sealed criminal expungements
Sealed – An arrest or criminal conviction that cannot be disclosed to certain parties and actions but the ones allowed access.
This sealed criminal expungement record prohibits access to these parties and actions:
- Potential employers
- Background searches
- Educational institutions
- Rental housing/apartment applications
Because sealed records prohibit these parties access, this allows people to a second chance at life.
For the same reason states like California benefit from this law, which boosts the housing market and the economy.
Evidence of this is the current booming housing market, which allows people with sealed records to compete.
Under seal criminal expungements
Under seal – Sealed arrests or convictions that cannot be erased and can be accessed by certain parties.
Conversely, this under seal criminal expungement record allows access to these three parties:
- Government agencies
- Law enforcement
- Criminal courts
Because under seal records allow these parties access, this really causes alarm.
However, without a doubt the government benefits from this law.
In contrast this law just actually helps criminal court have proof of prior conviction.
How can I help you?
For one thing, criminal expungements are a very serious and sensitive issue.
So much so, I have dedicated my life and firm to this practice.
In conclusion and without a doubt, if you are looking for a strong compassionate attorney.
