An expunction is a lawsuit asking a District Court to enter an order that all law enforcement agencies with any records of a person's arrest and/or criminal charges are to be erased, deleted or destroyed. State law defines who can and cannot get an expunction. In most cases a person's eligibility for expunction is clear.
After it is determined whether a client is eligible, we prepare a legal document, called a Petition that must be signed by the client. This document is then filed with the District Court, initiating the expunction lawsuit.
If an expunction is granted, the client is then legally permitted to deny that the arrest or charges every occurred on job applications, or for any other purpose. The only exception is if the client is testifying under oath in a criminal matter, in which the client must respond the matter has been expunged.
