Expungement And Sealing

Will it go on my record? The answer to that question may shape your future forever. A criminal record likely will cause problems down the road or right away and close doors that should remain open. If you have been arrested, you most likely were fingerprinted, photographed and put into a database where your arrest is now available to the public. Even if you are eventually found not guilty or your case is dismissed, you are in the system.

At the Law Offices of Steven J. Block and Associates we will act quickly to remove you out of the system if we are legally able to do so. Nobody wants a past, present or future employer to have access to your past and that can be buried away. Background checks are routinely used to weed applicants for job applications, angry ex-spouses, or even insurance companies.

If you are arrested in the State of Illinois, and your charge was dismissed or found not guilty you may be eligible for an expungement of your record. Likewise, if you were sentenced to supervision, you also may eligible for an expungement of your record based upon the type of offense. 

The Sealing of a record is not as good as an expungement. With an expungment of a record, it is simply gone. Contrastly, a sealing does not completely wipe it away, but rather, keeps the record alive but can be accessed in a limited manner 

The process of obtaining an expungement or sealing does not happen overnight. First, an experienced expungement attorney should properly file a Petition for Expungement. Every county and district within particular counties have different rules and regulations as to the expungement and sealing method. Second, it is extremely important that "we know" what "they know". If this is your only arrest, ordering a background through the Illinois State Police and investigating further will not be necessary. However, if you have been arrested more than once and have case(s) pending , we need to know about any cases from your past that were 1) dismissed; 2) SOL'd, 3) sentenced to supervision; 4) sentenced to conditional discharge; 5) sentenced to probation.

Contact Steven J. Block and Associates and let us evaluate your past and give you a candid evaluation as to whether an expungment or sealing of you record is a worthwhile investment of your time and resources.
