Expungement
Law Offices of David G. Arganian, Seattle, WA

Expungement

    Many times when you apply for a job you are asked if you have ever been convicted of a crime.

    If you have had a felony conviction expunged, you can legally answer "no" to this question.

    Expungement is a procedure whereby you can ask the court to basically expunge or delete your criminal conviction. You are only eligible to do this if you:

  • Have completed all your sentencing obligations to the court;
  • The appropriate time limit has expired; and
  • The crime you were convicted of is one the law permits you to expunge.

    In Washington, the law does not have a provision to expunge felonies; Although the legislature is considering a bill to permit expungement of misdemeanors.
