Expunge an Illinois Permanent Record
When you expunge your permanent record, it means the actual destruction of the record and removing the petitioner's name from any official public record or index. That statement means the person’s record will be cleared of any charge, arrest, supervision, or possible conviction as if it never happened. If you do not qualify for expungement, you may still qualify for sealing or other relief.
There is a time limit and waiting period for when a person can petition to have their record expunged and it varies depending on the charge. Driving under the influence (DUI) and reckless driving convictions are not eligible to be sealed or expunged. The rules about what can and cannot be expunged are extremely complex, and you need a knowledgeable lawyer to help you expunge your record.
Even if you have been charged and had the charges dropped or dismissed or were falsely arrested, you will need to petition to have your record expunged. Arrest records are public no matter what the results. Having your record sealed will take it off the official public record so potential employers or other organizations will not be able to see the arrest records or charges. With an experienced lawyer, many times the petition to expunge can be completed without you having to appear in court.
