What Is an Expungement?

An expungement is a court order that seals your criminal record. Once your record is expunged, it will be as if the arrest and/or conviction never happened. No one will be able to find out about your arrest or conviction. You can legally deny that you were ever arrested or convicted.

There are two types of expungement in North Carolina: An expunction and a set-aside.

  • An expunction is a type of expungement that completely erases your criminal record.
  • A set-aside is a type of expungement that seals your criminal record.

What Crimes are Eligible for Expungement in North Carolina?

Understanding which crimes qualify for expungement is crucial. In North Carolina, a range of offenses may be eligible, including certain misdemeanors and low-level felonies. The eligibility criteria often depend on factors such as the type of offense, the individual's criminal history, and the time elapsed since the completion of the sentence.

Eustache Law specializes in navigating the intricate eligibility requirements, ensuring our clients clearly understand their options. Whether it's expunging a misdemeanor conviction or addressing specific felony charges, our legal team is equipped to guide you through the process and advocate for your rights.

What are the Benefits of Expungement?

Expungement offers a multitude of benefits that extend far beyond the courtroom. Here are some compelling reasons to consider seeking expungement with the support of Eustache Law:

  • Employment Opportunities: A clean record opens doors to employment opportunities that may have been previously closed. Employers often conduct background checks, and an expunged record can significantly enhance your chances of securing your desired job.
  • Housing Access: Expungement can improve access to housing options. Landlords and property managers may hesitate to lease to individuals with criminal records, but an expungement can mitigate these concerns.
  • Professional Licensing: Certain professions require background checks and may hesitate to grant licenses to individuals with criminal records. Expungement can be a crucial step in pursuing careers that involve professional licensing.
  • Personal Reputation: Beyond the legal and practical implications, expungement allows individuals to rebuild their reputations. It provides a sense of closure and empowers individuals to move forward without the weight of past mistakes.
  • Legal Rights Restoration: Expungement can restore certain legal rights, such as the right to own firearms. It offers a path to reclaiming fundamental rights that may have been restricted due to prior convictions.
