DuPage County Record Sealing Lawyers
Many individuals who do not qualify for expungement may be eligible to have their record sealed, often due to a criminal conviction. While expungement is usually preferable, it is not always possible, and, when it is not, record sealing may be a viable alternative. Sealed records cannot be completely destroyed, but they are kept confidential with very limited access. A record that has been sealed will not be visible during normal employment background checks. They may be accessed, however, by law enforcement and in very select circumstances.
Many misdemeanor convictions are eligible for sealing along with certain felony offenses, including particular drug crimes and prostitution charges. At the Davi Law Group, our experienced team is familiar with the requirements and regulations regarding record sealing. We will work with you throughout the process to help you take advantage of the afforded opportunity to create a more positive future.
