We assist clients in sealing criminal records, offering the guidance you need to navigate this complex legal process. 

What is Record Sealing?

Record sealing is a legal process that restricts access to certain criminal records, effectively making them invisible to the general public. While the records are not destroyed, they are removed from public view, helping you to reclaim your privacy and reduce the negative impact of past mistakes on your future.

Benefits of Sealing Records

  • Employment Opportunities: One of the most impactful benefits of sealing your records is the improvement in job prospects. Employers often conduct background checks, and a sealed record means your past won’t hinder your chances of securing employment.
  • Housing Applications: Landlords also perform background checks. With a sealed record, you have a better chance of being approved for rental properties.
  • Peace of Mind: Knowing that your past is not easily accessible can provide immense peace of mind and allow you to focus on building a better future.

Requirements and Qualifications for Sealing Records

The process for sealing records varies depending on the type of offense and jurisdiction. Generally, you must meet certain criteria to qualify, including:

  • Time Elapsed: A specific amount of time must have passed since your conviction or completion of your sentence.
  • Type of Offense: Some crimes may not be eligible for sealing. Typically, non-violent offenses and misdemeanors are more likely to qualify.
  • No Pending Charges: You must not have any current criminal charges against you.
  • Behavior Since Conviction: Demonstrating good behavior and rehabilitation can be crucial in qualifying for record sealing.

At The Bellinger Law Office, we will thoroughly evaluate your case to determine your eligibility and guide you through the necessary steps.
