Limitations on E-Z Expungement
E-Z Expungement Cannot Help With:
Certain Government Positions
You must disclose expunged convictions on applications for law enforcement or when running for public office.
Expungement does not remove a criminal conviction for immigration purposes. However, a Padilla Motion can undo a guilty plea made by a non-citizen.
Criminal and Arrest Record
Expungement does not remove a record of arrest or change the entry of judgment from your department of justice record. It does not remove your fingerprints from law enforcement databases.
Background Check Companies
There are numerous background check companies that maintain their own criminal records. These records are based on public records collected by the the companies. An expungement has no effect on these records.
When Can I Start E-Z Expungement?
One Year After Misdemeanor Or Infraction
You may expunge a misdemeanor or infraction charge one year from the date of conviction if you have complied with the sentence and obeyed all laws during that time.
Upon Fulfilling Probation Conditions
Usually, if you have satisfactorily completed the probationary period or has been discharged before its termination, you are entitled to have the guilty plea withdrawn and the accusations dismissed.
Upon Payment Of Restitution
If you were sentenced to pay restitution, you cannot expunge your criminal conviction until the balance of the restitution is paid.
Expungement In the Interests of Justice
If you do not meet the requirements above, you may still ask the court to expunge your case. However, you will need to file a written statement explaining why expungement is “in the interest of justice” (see Penal Code section 1203.4(a)(1).)
