Types of criminal records that can be sealed

No one in Illinois is perfect and from time to time people make mistakes. There are many different types of mistakes and many different consequences people face because of those mistakes. Some mistakes are more serious than others. For example, some mistakes can lead to people being fired from their jobs, losing friends and in some situations can lead to criminal charges. If people end up being convicted of those criminal charges, the consequences can affect them for a long time.

Required waiting periods before expungement of criminal records

There are consequences for people's actions in Illinois. Some of the consequences are good and other are not. When people break the law oftentimes they experience negative consequences. These consequences depend on the type of crime committed and can include fines, community service, probation, house arrest, jail time and many other consequences.

We can help seal or expunge your criminal record

Criminal convictions or even criminal charges can negatively impact the rest of your life. Potential employers may immediately rule out a qualified candidate if they see that they have been convicted of a crime, no matter how minor that crime is. A criminal record can also affect your ability to find housing, qualify for loans, or become certified in your career. It can even affect whether you get custody of your children following a divorce or separation. Many people make the mistake of falsifying their applications and attempting to hide their convictions altogether. Unfortunately, lying about your criminal history is a crime in itself and can lead to even more trouble.

Having a drug conviction on your record can negatively impact your life for years to come, even if it was a minor marijuana possession charge. If you have a low-level marijuana conviction on your record, a new Illinois bill may help you expunge your criminal record. Once your record is expunged, it will no longer be accessible to the public and you will be allowed to tell potential employers that your record is clean.
