You should either consult with and hire a lawyer to assist you; or if you want to do it yourself, then you need to get an expungement form, fill it out, and properly file it with the arresting agency with the appropriate fee. You can get the form from the GBI or most law enforcement agencies.

Also, there are new laws that also effect what is eligible for restriction. An attorney trained in the area of criminal law can help you navigate through these new changes.
