Having a clean record is vital to obtaining a good job. In Illinois only arrests that do not result in conviction or supervision (a suspended sentence), are eligible for expungement. Certain non-violent offenses can be sealed, which is almost the same thing as expungement in practical effect.
The Skill And Guidance You Need
The criminal defense attorneys at Albukerk & Associates have done dozens of expungements. We are experienced in gathering the records and arguing the motions needed to convince a judge that the client is a good candidate for expungement.
An expungement is not automatic; the Court has discretion to issue the order expunging your record. If you have a number of arrests for domestic violence, for example, this is going to have to be explained. Affidavits and other evidence might have to be presented.
