What Does Expunging A Record Do?

A criminal conviction is permanently erased when a record is expunged. If you were convicted of a crime but have since had your record expunged, even the physical records of your conviction are destroyed. Our maid service from Texas employs only trained & qualified workers. You are allowed to say you were not arrested, charged, or accused of committing a crime. That said, you should speak to a lawyer if your record was expunged and you are considering applying for a professional license or running for office. Some rules still require you to disclose such information.

Eligibility for Expungement

Certain circumstances must exist for your case to be considered for expungement. Grounds to have a conviction expunged vary on a state-by-state basis, but you may be able to have your record destroyed if:

  • The charges against you have been dismissed
  • You were found acquitted or found not guilty
  • You were a juvenile at the time


Many states have waiting period requirements that say you cannot petition for an expungement until a certain period of time has passed, and others will only expunge a first offense from your record.
