Elements of an Expungement

An expungement is the dismissal of your criminal conviction by way of a written request to the court. Once our Oakland expungement lawyers achieve a dismissal pursuant to Penal Code 1203.4 then you will no longer be convicted of the crime. This process does not erase the arrest from your criminal record but it will dismiss the charges against you which will help with your job applications. You may be eligible for an expungement if you received probation and the following took place:

  • The probation was successfully completed or you were granted an early release
  • All monetary issues have been closed; fines and restitution have been paid
  • You are not facing any additional charges or are currently on another probation

If you were not sentenced to probation, you may also apply for expungement if the following took place:

  • One year has passed since your conviction
  • You complied with all of the terms of your sentencing
  • You face no additional charges or additional probation
  • You have followed the law and been honest since your conviction
