A: No. It depends upon what act you were sentenced under. There is a statute that one may be sentenced under that, in theory, does not amount to a judgment and, therefore, when one satisfies the conditions of the sentence it is dismissed. This is not used in most cases but it is used in drug courts and when specifically ordered by the judge.

Typically, you must wait until you complete or substantially complete your probation and pay any applicable fines before you file a motion to seal the record.
