Need help sealing a criminal record?
Re-entering the community with a criminal background can be overwhelming. When you have a record, it can keep you from getting jobs, housing, or even a degree.
At Community Legal Aid, we believe in your right to start over. To help you get started, we've created this online toolkit to help you navigate the world of record sealing, or what is commonly called expungement. You can find details about your criminal case by using the online case search portal where the charges were filed.
Step 1: Pick your next move
Step 2: Find your court's paperwork
No matter where you are in this process, you have rights as a returning citizen. Our full booklet on returning citizens' rights is coming soon.
