If the Judge refuses to sign the order, you can file a motion and have a hearing, asking the court why the motion to expunge your record was denied, after you were found not guilty, at trial. You can present argument to the court, informing them how this charge has effected your life and is creating a hardship. The court should give you a reason, as to the denial. It is possible that it is based upon the nature of the crime. However, even if someone were to do a background check, it would not that no conviction was entered.

Expert:  CrimDefense replied 8 years ago.
Contact an attorney and have them file the motion. Find someone who is familiar with the Judges in the county where you need this done, who can give you more insight about the specifics about this Judge.
