    Answered . An expungement petition can be filed and processed within 90 days, however, it will not be completed in that short of time. It will take the State Police and FBI atleast six months from the date they receive the expungement order to run it through their system. Also, keep in mind that Pendot will maintain a record of the matter for 10 years.

    Answered . You should talk with a DUI attorney who handles expungements. An expungement after successful completion of ARD can be filed almost immediately however it will take longer for everything to actually be expunged. After a Judge signs the order it the has to be sent to all the different agencies to then comply with.

    Answered . While the petition can be filed the time period for compliance by the entities involved often takes about 6 months. My suggestion is that you retain an attorney to get this filed at once. Good luck.
