Expunctions in North Carolina are a time consuming and sometimes invariably difficult process. Unfortunately, for many North Carolinians they are unaware of the implications and the damage that a criminal charge can have on their lives. Having criminal arrest records, charges or convictions on your record can negatively affect you in many different ways. A criminal record check that exposes a long forgotten charge may impede you from getting that new position, a recent charge may keep you from attending a college or university, cause you to get denied for a loan, or perhaps keep you out of your next apartment or house.
If you have ever been charged with a criminal offense that offense will stay on your record. Regardless of the disposition of the case, a record check will show that you were charged with a crime. So even if you had received a dismissal, you could still be hindered by the fact that you now have a record.
