Please note, in Connecticut an expungement of the applicant’s criminal record is obtained with an Absolute Pardon only.   Once a Pardon is granted a collaborative effort between Board of Pardons and Paroles, Judicial, State Police, Court Support Services Division, and FBI commences this process.  The entire Pardons process can take up to one years, depending on the volume of applications received.
