Expungement Overview

Expungement can remove a charge from an individual's record, which can have a profound effect on that person's life. Even if a person is eligible for expungement, however, it isn't a sure thing. This section provides basic information on expungement, including when a person is eligible to have a charge removed from their record and when expungement is not available. You can also start by downloading FindLaw's Guide to Expungement [pdf].
