If your conviction is more than 3 years old, and you fully complied with all requirements of your sentence, and you have not had any other convictions in the past 10 years, and you are not facing any criminal charge now, you should qualify for expungement under ORS 137.225. Unless and until you expunge your conviction, you are not allowed to possess a firearm. Contact an attorney for help in removing the conviction from your record.See question

Under Oregon law, a conviction that has been expunged no longer exists, and all official records are supposed to be sealed. See ORS 137.225. Do not rely on legal counsel about Oregon law from someone who knows nothing about Oregon law.See question
My wife has a no contact order with me. She has a criminal trial today. can I sit in to find out what she is charged with and observe the out come. Thanks...
If your wife has a no-contact order against you, you should read the order carefully and make sure you comply. Many times, a no-contact order forbids the person who is the subject of the order (respondent) from being within a certain distance of the person who is protected by the order (petitioner). For example, of the order forbids you from being within 100 yards of your wife, you will be in violation of the order if you are in a courtroom with her, since all courtrooms are smaller than 100 yards in size.See question
