Chico Expungement Lawyers
If you have been convicted of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs in California, you may be able to get the conviction removed from your record. Most DUI convictions are eligible to be expunged in California pursuant to Penal Code Section 1203.4.
It is important to note that a DUI results in two types of records: a DMV record (commonly called a driving record) and a criminal record. A DUI in California will automatically fall off of an individual’s driving record within 10 years. However, a criminal DUI conviction stays on an individual’s record for life, unless it is expunged through the court system.
A criminal DUI on record can have many adverse implications; difficulty qualifying for employment, credit challenges, and housing issues. Basically, a criminal record can be a very tough thing to contend with.
To expunge your record, you must have successfully completed your probation, not be facing any other charges, serving any additional sentences, have paid all fines and restitution and met all conditions of your sentencing.
Usually, the attorney who represents you will continue forward with the expungement process. Consult with a Chico expungement attorney at our firm today.
