Expungement Lawyer Minneapolis, MN
Minnesota Criminal Record Expungements
Expungement means the sealing of a criminal record. Having a criminal record can present problems in obtaining employment, housing, a loan, and may create difficulties in other areas as well. An expungement will remove your arrest and criminal conviction history from public search records.
In Minnesota, there are two types of criminal expungements: expungements that are ordered under Minnesota statutes and expungements that are ordered under the court’s “inherent authority.”
While not all cases can be expunged, as of January 1, 2015, Minnesota’s Second Chance law allows for statutory grounds for an expungement to include convictions of all criminal levels, including felonies.
The expungement process can be complex. An experienced attorney can navigate the expungement process for you and maximize the likelihood that your record will be sealed.
