My name is ***** ***** I am a NSW Solicitor. I will do my best to assist you with your question.
You cannot clear your criminal record it remains in tact. The law though will make certain criminal notations spent so they are not released in many cases provided you have had a 10 year period with no criminal offences.
After that they become spent and you do not have to disclose them. There are cases though e.g. working with children travel etc where they have to be disclosed and they will be released.
They do not disappear for good.
