How to Expunge Your Criminal Record

Legal experts will explain how to expunge and seal your criminal record during a free session for Cook County residents at the Evanston Public Library on Saturday, March 9.

A criminal record can make it difficult to find a job, get financial aid for school or apply for public housing--unless you expunge or seal that record.

To help explain the process, legal experts are holding a free Expungement Expo at the Evanston Public Library, 1703 Orrington Ave., from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday, March 9, open to anyone who lives in Cook County.

Attorneys and law students will be on hand to explain how to clear your adult or juvenile criminal record, or how to minimize its impact by obtaining a certificate of rehabilitation, according to a press release from the city.

No records will actually be cleared at the expo, but experts will explain how to begin the process with a petition at the Cook County Circuit Court.
