A: Depending on what happened with the case, you may qualify for either a Non-Disclosure Order or an Expunction. Both seal your record. An expunction actually orders the police to destroy their records of your arrest. Consult a local attorney to see if you qualify for either of these.
A: It depends on the outcome of your case. Since you said that you were charged with a Class A Assault Bodily Injury/Family member, there are only two ways that you can have this removed from your criminal record. One , your case was dismissed, two you went to trial and were found not guilty of all charges, including any lesser offenses. That is it. An Order of Nondiscloser is not available for a family violence offense.
