Expungement

An expungement allows you to reopen your criminal case, set aside the conviction and dismiss the case. As a result, your criminal record will no longer show the conviction. However the expungement will continue to appear on your record. It is important to note that the expungement does not clear from your record the fact that you were arrested or that charges were filed.

Citizenship

Riverside County adult schools offer citizenship classes that prepare you for the naturalization interview and for the test. To become a U.S. citizen, you have to complete an application (form N-400), attend an interview and pass an English and civics test.
