Do you have an old conviction or arrest on your record that is stopping you from getting a job or otherwise interfering with your livelihood? You may be eligible to have that conviction or arrest expunged. An individual’s criminal history file may be expunged or sealed under Indiana law. Individuals may apply for expungement after a waiting period that varies depending upon the seriousness of the offense. Misdemeanors may be expunged, if eligible, five years after you are last on paper and many felony convictions may be eligible for expungement after eight years. Dismissals or cases that were not filed may be eligible after one year.
Expungement is a complicated process, and not all convictions can be expunged. The request for an expungement can only be made once, and if not done properly, will not be granted and you may lose your ability to petition for an expungement later. We are proud to have helped many Hoosiers get their convictions expunged and get on with their lives.
