Do I have to wait a certain amount of time after my case is closed to begin the sealing or expungement process?

By smradmin

No.Many people think they have to wait a certain amount of time before they can seal or expunge a case. That is not correct. Once the case is closed and you are not under court supervision (house arrest, probation, etc.) you can immediately begin the  sealing or expungement process.


So, if you go to the arraignment and the prosecutor says that they are not filing charges, you can begin the expungement the same day! In fact it is better not to wait. The longer you wait, the more chance there is that a third party data company will buy your data and this will cause headaches for you down the road even after the case is expunged.
