The Expungement Process

This article describes steps to take when trying to expunge criminal records from public access.

Expungements in Virginia

Expungement is a process where an individual who has been arrested and charged with a crime, but who was NOT convicted, can have police and court records of the arrest and charges sealed from public view. This does NOT mean the records are destroyed. The records are taken away from public view and can only be seen if the court gives permission (such as to a law enforcement officer).
