Why expunge orders are useless unless criminal database companies are updated

Court records are open to the public. Private companies all over the country collect criminal history and other personal information from court records. These companies store that information on their own computers. In the normal course of things, no one informs these companies when a record is expunged. The courts do not even keep track of who has searched their records. Therefore the information that those companies previously stored can still be reported, not by the court, and not by State or the National Crime Information Center, but by these private companies. Records Removal Services provides this service with your expungement order.
