  • What is the process of getting a non felony charge on my record expunged?

    Charge is over 10 years old and I am eligible for expungement

    Carl’s Answer

    To get an expungement there is a certain set of forms that have to be prepared and filed. If you want to do it yourself you may. There are many attorneys that also do expungements. Please search and make some calls to determine which is best for you.
