Good Afternoon

My name is ***** ***** I am a NSW Solicitor. Thank you for your question, and will do my best to assist you with your question. Please understand this is not legal advise Please understand this is not legal advise but a guide to assist you.

It will never be cleared 100% they stay there but once you have a 10 year with no criminal offences certain things do not get disclosed.

They are called spent convictions

Here is some information

Some convictions can never be spent because they are too serious and with certain jobs you have to disclose them.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance.
