Illinois’ Recent Expansion Of Sealing Criminal Records – Series Recap
This post concludes and recaps my series on Illinois’ recent expansion of the ability to seal criminal records and how this change impacts Peoria residents. I felt it necessary to write on this topic due to the fact that many people with a prior conviction find themselves unable to re-enter the workforce. They may also have difficulty gaining housing and in passing a background check. The goal of my last several articles has been to provide information which will help people to better understand their options. It has also been goal to provide information which will help people to make an informed decision when they are selecting an attorney.

I have addressed several topics over my recent articles. Issues which I have analyzed include:
- Illinois’ recent changes in criminal record sealing
- Illinois’ expansion of record sealing eligibility
- Why one should seal their criminal record
These are important topics for a local resident to understand. First, recent changes in the law have greatly expanded the number of people who will be eligible to clear their history. This means that people who were previously not eligible to seal their record may now do so. Second, it is important to learn whether you fall into the expanded group of people who can seal their record. Do not simply assume that you are or are not eligible. Finally, there are a number of benefits to sealing your record as soon as possible. These benefits include not having to disclose your history to potential employers and more.
