Can I get something removed from my criminal record?

State law has specific requirements regarding expungements.  There is not a limit to the number of misdemeanors you could have set aside in your lifetime. Up to three felonies may be set aside in your lifetime. Certain types of convictions have additional rules about the number of convictions that can be set aside.  

Specific details can be found by clicking here.

The process takes approximately 3 to 4 months from the application date to the hearing before the Judge. You may hire an attorney or handle the application yourself.
