Once all documents are obtained, a petition must be drafted that includes all eligible records. The petition is then sent to the prosecuting attorney for review. The prosecuting attorney may stipulate to the record seal or deny the petition if it is incorrect, the person is ineligible, or the prosecuting attorney simply objects to the request. If the prosecuting attorney objects to the request, a hearing may be conducted to determine if the person may seal the record over the prosecuting attorney's objection.
If the prosecuting attorney stipulates to the record seal, the petition must then be filed with each court where a record of the charge or conviction exists. In some cases, a single petition may be filed with the District Court to seal a record in multiple lower courts. In some cases, a hearing may also be required before the judge agrees to seal the record. After the judge agrees to seal the record, a copy of the final order is then sent to all agencies that hold a record of the arrest, charge, or conviction. This is the final and most important step. Until all agencies receive a copy of the final order and comply with the record seal, the record may still be available to the public and appear on most background checks.
