Yes, it may be possible to restore your firearm rights without expunging your criminal record.
Washington state treats the two processes as separate, meaning that expunging your record will not automatically restore your firearm rights and vice versa. However, you may choose to expunge your criminal record and restore your firearm rights. Talk to our gun rights lawyers to find out which solution is best for you.
No, an expungement of your criminal record does not mean that your firearm rights are automatically restored. Restoring your firearm rights is a separate legal process that must be performed apart from your expungement.
Each firearm rights restoration case is different. While those with felony convictions can have their gun rights restored, there are several steps and eligibility requirements that must be met before rights can be regained.
If you now live in a different state but have a conviction in Washington, you will need to restore your rights under Washington law to clear a Federal background check. It may also be necessary to restore your rights in the State where you now reside depending on whether that State will honor a Washington State restoration of firearm rights.
Not everyone can have their criminal convictions cleared. To expunge your criminal record in the state of Washington, there are several requirements you must meet to be considered.
“Expungement” refers to the deletion or clearance of criminal records. “Vacating” a criminal conviction, which is also referred to as “expunging” a record, is the process of removing a conviction from your record. If you successfully expunge or vacate a conviction, Washington State and private reporting companies can no longer report your conviction for that crime.
In Washington state, sealing your juvenile records means that the public will no longer be able to view your criminal record, though it will remain in government databases. Additionally, background checks (such as those for employment and rental leasing applications) will no longer show your conviction.
