Virginia Criminal Record Expungement Lawyer
In Virginia, an expungement is the legal process to remove a criminal arrest or charge from police and court records. The process requires petitioning the Virginia Circuit Court of the jurisdiction where you were originally charged. Expungement of police and court records is not available in cases involving a Virginia conviction. For purposes of expungement, a conviction includes cases where the evidence was found to be sufficient for a finding of guilt even if not convicted.
