Step 2: Waiting Period

There is a period of time after a conviction you must wait before applying for an expungement. If enough time has not passed, unfortunately, you are ineligible (for now).

Felonies: 7 Years Prior to Today
Misdemeanors: 3 Years Prior to Today

If your conviction is eligible for expungement based on the date of conviction, please continue.

Step 3: Still Eligible? Great!
