If I have my civil rights restored, will my criminal history record disappear?

No, just like with a pardon, no type of rights restoration will automatically allow for a person to seal or expunge their criminal history record. However, getting your rights restored will help you whenever you have to apply for anything, like a job or housing. You can find out if you qualify for sealing or expunction of your record or if you need to apply to have your rights restored or for a pardon.
