  1. It depends on the circumstances of the dismissal and, in some cases, whether the statute of limitations has expired. Under certain circumstances, your prosecutor can agree to the expunction, even if the statute of limitations has not passed. I recommend that you consult an attorney who understands expunction law. He or she can answer your questions pretty quickly after learning more about your case. Good luck.

  2. You can get an acquittal dismissed without waiting for the statute of limitations to run. For most other dismissals you need to wait for the statute of limitations to run.

  3. Depending on the reason for dismissal, you can expunge the charge once the statute of limitations runs.
