    Default Will an FBI Record Check Come Back Clean After an Expunction

    My question involves expungements or pardons for the state of: North Carolina

    I just had a 1995 North Carolina misdemeanor (was dismissed) expunged from my record. My new company is going to run an FBI fingerprint check on me. Last year, another company ran one on me previously and it came back clean - no idea why my fingerprints were not on file.

    My question is twofold: 1) Will the expunction order I received trigger the FBI to now see the arrest - I had to provide new identifying information to the court (SSN/DOB) to get the order; 2) If they do see it, do they honor expunction orders from states?

    Oh, one more thing - when the FBI runs its fingerprint checks, do they use a SSN or just the fingerprints?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Not every conviction makes it into the FBI's databases. If your conviction was not made part of your FBI record, I very much doubt that the expungement order will affect that. The FBI generally respects state expungement orders, but does not have to do so. In a record check you can expect that the FBI will check by whatever information is available to it - name, SSN, a computer match of your fingerprints, etc.

    Depends on what the nature of the company is as well. Certain security checks will see even expunged offenses.
