Carteret County Expungement Attorney

Sealing Your Record – Protecting Your Future

An arrest or criminal record can be detrimental to your life. There are instances in which a first-time offender can get the crime expunged from their record – meaning that the records are sealed and that anyone who runs a background check would not run across the criminal case. This makes it so that someone who had been involved in the law, but had their records sealed, would be able to honestly answer "no" when asked if they have been convicted of a conviction– providing them with the ability to easily and successfully move forward in their future unhampered by the prior conviction.

In North Carolina, should someone be charged with a misdemeanor or a felony and it was either dismissed or if it was determined that they were not guilty, then they could be eligible for expungement. This would seal all records that are related to the apprehension or the trial. The following, however, would make someone disqualified for an expungement:

  • Previously receiving an expungement
  • Having a previous criminal conviction
  • Having pending criminal charges
  • The charge be in relation to a motor vehicle violation
