I was arrest for battery against my sister back in 09' in another county (MONORE COUNTY)the charges were dropped do the fact the state did have enough evidence against me. So the state decided to no follow thru with the charges. But it still shoes up on my record and its causing me to lose jobs when they pull my background.
The next legal step is to have the arrest expunged. You are eligible to have the arrest expunged if you have no prior convictions on your record. It would be in your best interest to hire an attorney because if you don't you will have to travel to Monroe County your self to complete the process. Good luck.
This is simple. Please contact one of us to see if you qualify to expunge your arrest and court records. That will remove all the entries that appear regarding your arrest that was dismissed.
You are only eligible if you have never sealed or expunged a case, and you have never been adjudicated guilty of another criminal offense anywhere.
The process is inexpensive but should be handled by a lawyer, to avoid complications that would cause your petition to fail. I wish you the best of luck and I hope that this information helps you. Feel free to contact me for further information.

You need to get your record sealed/expunged. Even after you seal your records, there will be entities that you still will have to disclose your arrest, however for the majority of the world you could say that you have never been arrested or charged with the crime if asked. To seal/expunge your record you will have to be eligible, that roughly means that you cannot have any criminal conviction (that includes all felonies and misdemeanors, plus criminal traffic charges such as DUI, DWLS, Reckless Driving, etc.), you cannot have sealed any previous records, and other requirements. My advice is to consult an attorney to do this for you. Good luck.
Answering your questions does not create an attorney/client relationship between you and this Law Firm or this attorney. Opinions expressed in this forum are for general information only and do not constitute legal advice. You should always consult with a retained attorney before making any decisions regarding your situation.
Depending on your criminal record, you may be able to seal and expunge this arrest. We can help.
You have the option of having your record expunged. The charges may have been dropped, but the record of your case remains available to the public unless you seal and expunge the case.
