What To Do About Online Arrest Records

After you are arrested in California by any Policing Department or Agency, the odds are good that your Arrest Details are lingering in a few places on the internet. Some counties are worse than others, but depending where you were arrested you could be on as many as 40+ websites. This happens regardless if your case gets dismissed in court, or you are found guilty.

Online Arrest Records can impact your:

  1. Personal Reputation
  2. Insurance Costs
  3. Employment Status
  4. Credit Applications
  5. And more….

I would like to go over the different types of Arrest Records that contain personal and sensitive information. Some of these records belong to Official Government Agencies, like Courthouses and the DMV. Some Records belong to unofficial agencies like Background Check databases and websites. Only a licensed Attorney can seal or expunge records belonging to Official Government Agencies. However unofficial records are just as harmful. That is why many people look for a qualified Online Reputation Company to remove criminal records off of the internet and background check databases.

Not all Background Check companies are the same. It’s important to distinguish background check companies that use their own database and stores their own records, versus background check companies that access Government Records at the time the background check is done.

  • 95% of Background Checks are done on Tier 1 Background Check Companies, they typically cost between $19.99 to $49.99 per search. We can remove criminal records off of these.
  • Tier 2 Background Check Companies cost between $199 and $499 per search. Tier 2 Background Checks are only done because companies are legally obligated to. Only a Lawyer can remove these criminal records.

Normally this is for hiring/maintain professionals with:

  1. Financial Institutions
  2. Schools or other jobs working with children
  3. Medical Field
  4. Professional Drivers

If you work in one of these aforementioned professions, nothing can help your background check except a qualified Attorney to get those records expunged or sealed. However, you should still work to get those pesky Online Arrest Records removed. Here’s a popular California Arrest Record website that we frequently have to remove records from:

Once it gets published to this website, dozens of other websites will re-publish them. Also, national websites like and others may try to charge you money to remove your listing.

All of this can be professionally dealt with, by a reputable Arrest Record Removal Company. After 7 years or a dismissal you can see a Licensed Attorney to have your Government Record sealed or expunged.
