Not a U.S. Citizen? What you need to know before you seal your criminal record.

Not a U.S. Citizen? What you need to know before you seal your criminal record.

If you have a criminal record that you want to seal and you are NOT a U.S. citizen, you need to make sure you obtain all the criminal records for your own file and future use.

Immigration will want proof and all your criminal records, which includes police reports, complaints, minutes, judgments and more.  You need to get these items certified as well.  You will need to do this before you seal your record.  Once you have all your documents, then proceed to seal your record.

If you have already sealed your criminal records, but now need your criminal records, one can still obtain the records.  It just will take a Petition and Order to unseal your records to inspect and make certified copies.

It is always best to speak to legal counsel and let them know of your immigration status before you seal your criminal record to avoid more work and cost in the future.
