F.A.Q. | Expunging and Sealing Your Record.
DO I HAVE A CRIMINAL HISTORY RECORD THAT I NEED SEALED AND CLEARED?
A criminal history record is created when a person is arrested and fingerprinted, and includes the disposition of that arrest, whether it is a conviction, acquittal, dismissal of charges before trial, or other disposition.

HOW MANY ARRESTS CAN I HAVE SEALED OR EXPUNGED?
A person may only seal or expunge ONE arrest record in one proceeding. More than one record may be sealed or expunged in the same proceeding if the court, in its sole discretion, finds the arrests to be directly related. An expunction or sealing which occurs automatically or by operation of law, without any action on the part of the record subject, is not considered a prior expunction or sealing for this purpose. By law, a juvenile diversion expunge does not prevent the person from seeking a judicial expunction or sealing.
