My question involves criminal records for the state of: California
Hi, I was wondering exactly how long it takes for expungements to actually disappear from background checks. I filed my 1203.4 in February, never got a letter or anything and just checked the court website, and it was granted in mid March. When I filed, they told me once it's granted, it then goes to the Department of Justice which then could take several more months for them to process it. So my question is when can I actually answer no on job applications when the "crime conviction" question comes up? I have lost out on so many good jobs because of this, and I have an interview tomorrow so I'm not sure how to handle it if the question comes up (I disclosed it on my app).
