Eligibility for Expungement in California
In California, expungement, or record clearance, is a post-conviction process that involves filing a petition to the court requesting that a conviction be dismissed. If successful, the individual will be released from some of the negative consequences of a conviction, including not being required to disclose the conviction on most employment applications.
The first step in getting a conviction removed from your record is to find out if you are eligible for expungement.
There are several requirements for expungement, including:
- You successfully completed your probation
- You are not charged with, on probation for, or serving a sentence for a crime
- You were not sent to California state prison for your conviction
- Your conviction did not involve a serious sexual offense against a child
