Expungement of Criminal Records in Illinois

Illinois Attorney Clear My Record

Remove the Public Record of Past Arrests with the Help of an Experienced Lawyer

If you were ever arrested and charged with a crime, an arrest record was entered into a statewide database and then sent to a national database at the FBI's National Crime Information Center (NCIC). Even if your case was later dismissed or you were found not guilty, there is still a public record of your arrest. That record of your arrest can be a problem.

When a prospective employer does a background check, that arrest will show up. If a prospective landlord does a background check, that arrest may stand in the way of you renting an apartment. Colleges, scholarship committees, professional licensure boards-they may all conduct criminal background checks that will unfairly turn up that past criminal charge.

Why invite trouble? Talk to a DuPage County criminal defense lawyer at Ramsell & Kunowski, L.L.C. about getting your arrest record cleared through the process of expungement. Call Ramsell & Kunowski, L.L.C.

Do You Qualify for Criminal Record Expunged?

With the help of a knowledgeable Illinois expungement lawyer, you may be able to clear most, if not all, misdemeanor charges and some felony arrests from your public record. These arrests could be expunged or sealed if:

  • You have completed the required waiting period for the charge against you, and
  • The court dismissed your case, declined to hear your case, said you were not guilty (acquitted you), or a deferred disposition resolved your case.

The expungement attorneys at Ramsell & Kunowski, L.L.C. have been successful in obtaining expungements for people charged with:

After your arrest records are sealed or expunged, you no longer need to acknowledge that arrest on most application forms. It is as if it never happened. What a tremendous relief. Contact a DuPage County defense lawyer at Ramsell & Kunowski, L.L.C. today to see if you qualify.
