Expungement Attorney in La Grange, Illinois
Protecting Your Record
The state of Illinois allows for certain criminal convictions to be expunged from your record, meaning that they can be completely erased assuming that your particular case meets certain criteria.
20 ILCS 2630/5.2 lays out the general provisions for the process of expungement of your records.
Records that can be expunged are:
Arrests for misdemeanors and felonies that did not result in a conviction
Convictions for misdemeanors and felonies only if they were reversed, vacated, or pardoned. You must also have a Certificate of Eligibility from the Prisoner Review Board.
You are an honorably discharged veteran.
You were sentenced to supervision, you’ve completed supervision, and the waiting period since the date of your completion has passed.
You were sentenced to qualified probation, and 5 years have passed since the date you completed your qualified probation.
Cases that cannot be expunged include:
Any federal conviction outside of Illinois
Any sentences you have not yet completed, including parole, probation, or court supervision
Minor traffic offenses (unless you were released without being charged)
Convictions for misdemeanors and felonies (unless they were reversed, vacated, pardoned, or approved by the Prisoner Review Board)
Court Supervision or qualified probation that was not completed
Court Supervision for reckless driving (If you were 25 years old, or older, at the time)
Court supervision for sexual offenses against minors.
Court Supervision for driving under the influence.
