Vacating a felony conviction is helpful if you are convicted of a felony and would like to have the conviction removed from your record. With more than 80 percent of employers conducting background checks, vacating your conviction is a great investment. One of the requirements to vacate a felony conviction is that you must have been issued a Certificate of Discharge. Once the Certificate of Discharge is issued the waiting period starts. Therefore, if you already completed your sentence, including paying all fines and court costs, you should petition for the certificate to be backdated to the time of completion so that the waiting period starts at the date of sentence completion instead of the date that you decide to obtain a Certificate of Discharge.
Not all offenses are eligible for vacating and you must meet a waiting period that starts from the time you complete your probation and pay all fines and restitution, which is when the Certificate of Discharge should have been issued. The waiting periods are:
If your conviction is vacated, the conviction will not be included in your criminal history for purposes of determining a sentence in any subsequent conviction. Additionally, a person whose conviction has been vacated may state that he or she has never been convicted of a crime, including while responding to questions on employment or housing applications.
We start working on your case the same day you sign up and will work to get your case processed on our end as quickly as possible. The time it takes to for your case to be decided varies by court, but the typical case in Washington takes about four to five months.
