Will a Closed Criminal Case Appear on a Background Check?
Unfortunately, it is probably a safe bet to assume that if you were arrested anytime, anywhere and for anything in the digital age then your criminal record will almost certainly remain with you forever.
To some degree or another this is true regardless of whether your ultimately seal or even expunge your case.
Why? Because all arrests are matters of public record, and, even if they are subsequently removed from the public record they will still remain alive and well in a variety of private records. This is one down-side to technology.
You might want to do your own background check to see what pops up before your potential employer, lender, landlord, licensing authority, admission committee… whomever runs theirs own on you. Forewarned is forearmed.
If your prior indiscretion appears then, for better or for worse, you are probably best advised to take the wind out of the sails by admitting your past issues / indiscretions to your present (or potential) employer, lender, landlord, licensing authority, admissions committee, etcetera, rather than waiting for them to find out on their own, but that’s a personal, not a legal, decision.
