University of Illinois Students With Criminal Records May Be Eligible for Expungement

If you’re a University of Illinois student who’s made a mistake (or two) and now you’re stuck living with the consequences of having a criminal record, there may be a way for you to get a fresh start.

Criminal record expungement may be a way for you to leave your mistakes in the past, where they belong, so you can focus on your future after graduation.

Many people in situations like yours hire a Champaign expungement lawyer who puts in the hours and works to make it all happen.

Why Worry About Your Criminal Record Before You Graduate?

Do you really want to deal with that after you graduate?

The expungement process can take a while; it doesn’t happen overnight. The state may object to your expungement, and if they do, you may be entitled to a hearing… and this all takes time.

The sooner you begin working with a Champaign expungement lawyer, the sooner you’ll be able to move forward with your life.
