No one is perfect and we all make mistakes. However, some mistakes have more serious and lasting consequences than others. If you or someone you love has faced criminal charges, some of these charges can stay on the record indefinitely. Unfortunately, a criminal record makes life very challenging in many cases. Even basic tasks like renting an apartment or securing a good job can be difficult when your record is not what you want it to be. Thankfully, that does not mean there is no hope. Cedillo Law Office PLLC can work with you to see if expungements and non-disclosure are good options for your case.


These two processes are very different, but they can each have excellent results. An expungement erases the record of criminal charges. This is normally used for people who are acquitted or for those whose charges are dismissed by the authorities. Once a record is expunged, it basically does not show that the charges ever existed. This allows you to get on with your life without worrying about what will be pulled up on a background check. Non-disclosure options vary by case. If the person completes a course of action required by authorities, their criminal record is sealed. The charges are still present, but they will not show on a background check, so you should be able to move forward without any issues. However, the proper steps must be carefully followed before a non disclosure is issued.
