Domestic violence battery charge - sealed after 5 years?
Ask a Lawyerwhat's this?
QuestionCountry: United States of America
Advice from a lawyer had told my brother that records in his April 2000 domestic violence battery charge would be sealed after five years. Is this correct or does he have to petition this to happen?
AnswerYou often do need to ensure it is done--the clerk of the court will confirm for you.
