Misdemeanor dismissal effect on Green card process

In 2004 I was arrested for shoplifting. The charges were subsequently dismissed and I successfully completed the MIP program. I am planning to apply for expungement. During our recent H4 extentions, I have truthfull been stating my arrest. Recently our labor came through. We are now applying for the next stage and EAD. If I expunge my arrest, do I still have to say I was arrested on the immigration forms?

How long does an expungement take?

Can I apply for expungement myself?

If I still have to state I was arrested on the form, then will this affect my husbands green card process? Will I be refused EAD?

Thanks for your help.
