If Your Case Was Dismissed
Generally, clients (or their attorney) will usually have access to the proof that their criminal case was dismissed [for whatever reason]. This can be obtained at any court clerk’s window where the case was handled. Most courts call this a “minute order” of when the judge entered the official ruling that the case is dismissed. Some courts charge for an official copy.
If Your Case Was Expunged
Similarly, where your case was expunged, you may go to the court clerk’s office to obtain a copy of the official Order.
If You Were Arrested, but Never Charged
If you received a “detention only” release notice or still have the booking/citation you were given–and nothing happened in court, this will work.
But not all arresting agencies or District Attorneys’ offices will have copies of paperwork for your own records. Therefore, it’s best to contact the District Attorney’s office to ask for a “Status Letter” or “Final Decision” memorandum that says your arrest did not lead to criminal charges being filed. [Do keep in mind that this is not always needed for Record Fixer to work, but it’s best to have it if you can get it.]
