I am currently on probation for an OVI. I am working on

I am currently on probation for an OVI. I am working on cleaning up my legal loose ends. I have two charges from 2010 that were dismissed at state cost. (no arrests - it wasn't me) I don't want those misdemeanors to show up on a background check. I applied for and was granted a hearing to get these two offenses sealed.The judgement entry form has a line that I'm concerned about. It says "no criminal proceedings are pending against me". Does that mean no charges or does my probation count? Is it ok to check yes, if I'm on probation with no new charges and fines paid? That's how I read it, but I want to double check to stay out of trouble. I suppose I can remove that statement from the form, but not sure if it's required.

I had a disorderly conduct charge from about 20 years ago

I had a disorderly conduct charge from about 20 years ago and it had been expunged. And the horrible part was there were accusations of me saying the f word which never happened. However moving forward I was charged with child abuse and neglect by leaving my twins boys 16 months old in a car while pottying my daughter and buying a cable to get a picture for her class which is a class 6 felony. Do I need to tell my lawyer about the disorderly conduct since it was 20 years agoyears ago ?
