A domestic violencecharge where I grabbed a held on to my ex to keep her from leaving. I got kicked, scratched and neither of us filed charges. Two weeks later the state did. Because of this charge I’ve had trouble holding a job and had some non supports filed, which prevented 5 yrs from passing for an expungement. It’s been 16 years now. Any ideas?
In general, misdemeanors can be expunged if a series of qualifications are met. You can look at the misdemeanor expungement law in Kentucky by searching online for "KRS 431.078."
You should consider consulting with an attorney about the possible legal actions you may have. They'll be able to look at the facts of your case, make sure the case is eligible for expungement, give you specific legal advice, and walk you through the proper steps.
