How Long Will It Take To Clear My Record?

Many clients wonder how long the entire record clearing process will take. The simple answer is that it depends.

Every county and court district have different procedures and requirements when an expungement or sealing is filed.  Some districts within the same county, such as Cook County, take much longer than other districts to clear your record. In addition, the county prosecutor often objects to petitions to expunge/seal criminal records.  An objection further delays the process because a hearing before a Judge is required.
