What is the process?

Once you hire us, we can file a Petition for Expunction with the court and request a hearing be held to determine if an Expunction can be granted in your case.

We will prepare all of the documents for you and deliver them ready to be signed, notarized and filed with the courts.
We will attend the hearing and guide you through the process.

Will I be required to travel for a hearing?

Any hearing would most likely be held in the county in which you were charged. We will attend the hearing for you–no matter its location–and your presence would most likely not be required.

What happens if the court grants it?

Essentially all records of the arrest and/or charge are ordered to be destroyed.
