I was arrested for Domestic Violence in Connecticut in 2013. The charge included one felony and two misdemeanors. The prosecutor put me through a 1-year long Pre-trial diversion, after completing the program, my charges were dismissed and my arrest record was removed from Connecticut record according to CT state law. I had always believed that although my arrest record is removed from CT state records, it will always be there in FBI database. 5 yrs later in 2018 I took a fingerprint in a local police station and mailed it to FBI fingerprint record office in WV. Today I got the response back from FBI and it says "No prior Arrest Data at FBI" . I am really confused here, did FBI really removed by arrest record according to CT state law? Or FBI mistakenly sent me another report ?
The answer to your question is yes , but if you’re not a US citizen and are planning on applying for citizenship you need to talk with an Immigration lawyer first.
