In North Carolina, your criminal record may be expunged — that is, erased or sealed under certain circumstances. When your record is expunged, all official sources are purged, except for a confidential file to which judges may sometimes have access. In most cases, after your record is expunged, you may say that you were not arrested or convicted of a crime. Cleaning up your criminal history can be complicated. If you are not sure whether your record qualifies for expungement in North Carolina or for advice about your personal situation, contact The Fitzpatrick Law Firm to schedule a free consultation.
