Move On With Life By Sealing Your Record
Sealing your criminal record can offer you a second chance at life. It allows you more privacy when it comes to who gets to view your record. As a result, you have a better likelihood of getting the job, housing or professional licenses that you want.
Sealing your record, though, is not always easy. That is why we at Geigle|Morales, in Denver are available to help you. Our criminal law attorneys have helped hundreds of clients file successful petitions to have the court seal their records, allowing them a new lease on life.
Expungement Vs. Sealing: What Is The Difference?
Expunging a record means that it no longer exists. Sealing a record means that only law enforcement officers and court officers can view your record. Your past criminal charges or convictions will remain, but no one from the public can see them.
Which Crimes Will The Court Seal?
Colorado does not allow everyone to seal their records. Only certain offenses qualify. These include:
- Arrests that did not result in charges
- Dismissed charges
- Successfully completed deferred judgments
- Municipal offenses
- Misdemeanor drug offenses
- Other petty offenses
- Minor drug felonies
- Some felony offenses
The best way to determine whether you qualify is to speak with one of our attorneys. We will sit down with you in person or speak with you via phone or video chat to discuss your circumstances. If you are eligible, we can talk to you about your options, the next steps and how long it might take.
