Pittsburgh Expungement Hearings
In Pennsylvania, very few expungement cases involve a court hearing.
If you are eligible for an expungement, you will likely be able to erase all or part of your criminal record without ever appearing before a judge.
An expungement is mostly a bureaucratic, administrative process.
However, if a district attorney objects to your expungement petition, you may have an opportunity to explain to a judge why the expungement should be granted.
Spivak Law Firm offers a free consultation to review your criminal history and determine whether you are eligible for a full or partial expungement or record sealing.

Full Expungements v. Partial Expungements
There are two types of expungements under Pennsylvania law: a full expungement and a partial expungement. A full expungement allows you to completely erase from public dockets all charges and convictions related to an arrest incident.
By contrast, a partial expungement allows you to erase from public dockets only one or some of the charges or convictions related to an arrest incident. For instance, if you were arrested and charged with aggravated assault and harassment, a partial expungement may enable you to erase the harassment charge only.
