At Soyars & Morgan Law, we often get asked if someone qualifies to have their criminal charge non-disclosed. A non-disclosure is not the same as an expunction. An expunction entitles a person to have the arrest erased off their criminal history. A non-disclosure does not erase the arrest or offense off the criminal history, but it does, generally speaking, allow the defendant to deny the offense on job applications.
When considering whether to spend the money to obtain a non-disclosure, you need to consider who still qualifies to see the non-disclosed information. Below is a list of people who qualify to see the non-disclosed information.
