Washington

The State of Washington has stringent rules regarding the expungement of convictions and arrest records, coined “vacating a judgement”. Vacating a judgement is not possible even after time, conditions served, and no further offenses if involving violence, DUI, domestic, or sex-offenses of most nature. Those with criminal charges pending against them or new charges will not benefit for applying to have a judgement ‘vacated’ under any circumstances. C Class Felonies are not entertained, even after 10 years, while some charges are for pursuing ‘vacating’ of their records and conviction.
