Statesville Expungement Lawyer

In this age of fast, simple Internet communication, your criminal record is an open book. Employers, lenders, government agencies and others routinely perform comprehensive background checks. They may uncover an arrest and conviction from deep in your past and hold that against you. If that has already happened, there may be a way to prevent it from happening in the future.

Reach A Lawyer Who Knows The Procedures For Clearing Your Record

Under certain circumstances, you may be able to petition for expungement (also called expunction) of an arrest and/or conviction you incurred many years ago. Recent changes in North Carolina law make this possible for certain offenses committed as an adult in addition to juvenile charges, and we encourage you to contact us at Griffin Law, PLLC, to learn more.

The requirements for expungement are complex, and you will need an experienced lawyer's help with determining eligibility, filing a petition and collecting affidavits. Some basic considerations include:

  • Your expunction petition must be filed in the appropriate jurisdiction, such as Iredell, Alexander, Catawba or Davie County.
  • Among other factors, the offense for which you are seeking expungement must be a relatively low-level, nonviolent charge from at least 15 years ago.
  • You must have nothing more serious than a traffic violation on your record since that prior arrest.
