(10) Assuming I can satisfy all pre-conditions for sealing my criminal record, is an order sealing my record guaranteed?

No. A Judge will ultimately have final discretion concerning whether to grant your petition to seal your criminal record. The Judge can schedule a hearing and even hear evidence on any matter relevant to its decision.  This is why it is imperative to retain an experienced litigator to represent your interests.  The lawyers from The Hayes Law Firm have extensive litigation experience and will fight to seal your criminal record.
