The person I assaulted eventually married me.
If you were charged, but not convicted, you can file an expunction. If you were convicted, you'd have to get the conviction set aside (through a Motion for Appropriate Relief) then file an expunction. If it was just a charge, you just need an expunction - it's straightforward paperwork.
This is general advice only, nothing herein constitutes an attorney/client relationship.
What you are talking about is called an expunction, and it is possible to be qualified to receive one. However, this depends on what the resolution was of your charge. The expunction process can be very complex, so I would recommend speaking directly with an attorney who practices criminal law in the county you were charged in, and go over your circumstances with them. After knowing the details of your prior matter, the attorney will most likely be able to advise you if you eligible to have the charges expunged, and what the process will be.
You should consult with a criminal defense attorney in your county to find out if your case qualifies for an expungment of the arrest provided there was no conviction involved.
