Does the District or County Attorney (where applicable) get involved?
They do get involved. The request for the nondisclosure or expunction order along with your record and possibly other factors are reviewed by them. They almost always have no problem and will agree to the request. If they do agree, the judge will most likely sign the order. If they do not agree and have some problem with the request, a hearing requiring the person requesting the order to appear may be necessary. At this hearing, the attorney handling the request for the nondisclosure order will attempt to show that it would be in the interest of justice to grant the nondisclosure order. It is worth noting that of the many nondisclosures and expunctions that this office has done, very few (around 3 percent) have required a hearing.
