seal your criminal records

If you have been arrested or convicted of a crime you may be eligible to seal your arrest record or seal your criminal record.

A criminal record is a serious matter. In addition to social stigma and the actual punishment imposed, the collateral consequences of criminal convictions are significant and create aftershocks years after the completion of a sentence. A conviction may present barriers to employment, business opportunities, obtaining occupational licenses, housing, public benefits and child custody. A criminal record also may affect your parental rights, credit, immigration status, limit your right to travel and prevent you from voting, running for office, serving on a jury, obtaining a security clearance or owning a firearm. [MORE

When a record is sealed the Government deletes it or limits access to it. A sealed record can generally not be used against you, if you are applying for a job, in other background checks or in certain legal proceedings. Contact Riley Legal to find out about sealing your arrest record or criminal record.
