Each state has their own laws about expunging criminal convictions and you have to look at the statutes in the state where you received the felony charge. In addition, there are some crimes, no matter how long ago you committed them, that are not subject to being expunged. Finally, each state may have specific rules about time depending on the crime. For example, a motion to expunge a Class C felony in Washington State is 5 years after a set time and it is 10 years for a Class B felony. As I recall, you cannot expunge a Class A felony. So, if your state is similar to mine the degree of the crime is important in trying to answer this question.
The best and easiest way to get an answer is to call a criminal defense lawyer and ask them.
The basic answer is 15 years from date of conviction. However, you have left a lot of facts out which would be necessary for any lawyer to answer this question, as different felonies qualify for expunction, and other issues which are too complicated for your question. I would contact an attorney in Wayne County/Goldsboro and ask for a consultation. They will be in a far better position to answer your question than someone online.
In order to properly advice you, one needs to know the nature of the felony conviction as violent felonies; sex related offenses and certain drug related offenses are not eligible for expunction. Consult with an attorney in your area for assistance.
