Colorado Criminal Record Sealing Attorney
Legal Counsel & Court Filing Documentation Services
If your criminal record is holding you back, you may be able to have it sealed. By sealing your record, you can hide it from public access and prevent it from showing up on a background check. With a sealed record, you’ll find it easier to get a job, rent an apartment, and qualify for other opportunities or benefits.
At The Legal Quill, we understand the advantages that record sealing can offer both adults and minors. Our firm can advise you on whether you qualify for record sealing, inform you of the process, and prepare your documents effectively.
How to Seal Your Record in Colorado
If you have been arrested or convicted of a crime, it remains on your record indefinitely. Sealing a record makes it inaccessible to the public. However, you must meet Colorado’s eligibility requirements to have your record sealed before you can petition the court for this service.
You may qualify for record sealing if:
- You were arrested but were never formally charged with an offense
- You were arrested but your case was dismissed
- You were found not guilty of the criminal charge
- You were convicted of a petty offense or municipal violation unrelated to drug charges
- Your record contains certain drug crimes
- You were convicted of underage DUI with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) that did not exceed .05%
- You were convicted of underage alcohol possession/consumption
- You were convicted of underage marijuana possession/consumption
Criminal convictions for certain offenses can never be sealed under Colorado law. These offenses include sex crimes, DUI, certain traffic misdemeanors, and infractions. In every case, it is up to a judge’s determination whether your record will be sealed or not.
