To erase, remove, or wipe out is what expunge refers to. A judge will order the expungement of a criminal case. We can help you get your expungement certificate.
WHY GET AN EXPUNCTION ORDER?
A criminal conviction on your record can make a big difference in how the world perceives you. This includes potential employers and those responsible for issuing loans. A criminal record can make it difficult to obtain a job, borrow student loans, rent or buy a house, apartment, or pick up your children from school.
Even though your case was dismissed it does not mean that the offense or arrest is no longer on your record. Employers and other individuals who conduct background checks on you can see that you have been charged with a criminal offence. This information is available to anyone who searches the public records. The charge will remain indefinitely unless you receive an expungement order by a judge.
All records will be destroyed once an expungement order has been issued. If you don’t wish to, you don’t need to tell anyone. It is possible to legally deny that the incident took place in most cases. Visit: Rand & Gregory Attorneys at Law Carthage 28327 Fayetteville NC for more details
