In Illinois, you may be eligible to have your prior criminal case(s) expunged or sealed from your record. This means that the public may not be able to access your record and your record will not show up on general background checks. However, certain agencies and organizations may be able to see the record, such as law enforcement and court personnel.

Criminal Defense Attorney in Central Illinois:


In order to be eligible for expungement in Illinois, your prior case(s) must meet certain requirements, such as:

    1. Your case was dismissed or you were found not guilty.
    2. You are not currently on probation or parole.
    3. You do not have pending criminal cases.
    4. You do not have prior cases that are NOT eligible for expungement/sealing.

The process for expungement/sealing is to file a petition with the court. You may also need to attend a hearing. The court will consider your petition and could grant or deny it based on the circumstances of your individual case(s).
Expungement/sealing is not available for all types of criminal cases. Sometimes there is also a waiting period in order to apply for expungement/sealing.
