Frequently Asked Questions
Why do I need to update criminal databases if I already got an expungement or records correction?
While private companies are quick to add your information from government sources, they often don’t update your information. If you have received an expungement or recently cleared your record, there is no way they know about it unless someone tells them. We notify hundreds of databases for you.
Will my record be cleared from all databases?

We opt you out from many of the major databases. If your records are accurate and you do not qualify for the “enhanced" opt-out service or expungement service, we can only opt you out from background check companies that have a general opt out policy . Many of the background check companies allow for you to opt out without any requirements. Some background check companies used by law enforcement, attorneys and large corporate companies only allow for removal of a criminal record that has been expunged, sealed, set aside, or under special circumstances. It is impossible to know how many new background check companies are created everyday, making it difficult to guarantee removal from EVERY database. We do have staff dedicated to updating our list of companies frequently as new companies pop up.

What if my criminal record still shows up after I use this service?

Simply email us! If it is an expungement, records correction or enhanced opt out, or if they allow regular opt-out request we can assist you in having them removed.

How long does the process take?

If you are using our Expungement/Records correction service, we first verify your court documentation before submitting them.  This process usually takes less than 7 days.  With our opt-out service, we submit your information right away.   Once we submit your information, many databases will remove your information within 72 hours.  Within five weeks from submission, your information should be removed from the databases.

How long am I covered for?

All services we offer come with an automatic year of coverage.  This means we will continue to opt you out of all new background check companies we find for a year.  For a small yearly fee, you can continue your coverage and make sure that as we find the companies, your protected.

Can you provide me legal assistance in getting my record cleared?

As a law firm, we can assist you with legal questions related to states where we are licensed to practice law.  In many states where we are not licensed to practice, we have “Of Counsel” we can refer you that can assist you.  We provide background check opt-out and correction services as a non legal service in all 50 states.
