Expungements: Misdemeanors, Felonies, and Dismissed Cases

Our firm is well versed in Indiana’s recently updated expungement statute with experience screening and filing several expungements in counties around Central Indiana. We can review your criminal history of misdemeanors, felonies, and dismissed cases to let you know if you are likely eligible for an expungement of Indiana criminal convictions and dismissals, and what an expungement would mean in terms of restoring your rights.

Please note, most misdemeanor criminal convictions are not eligible for expungement unless at least five years have passed, felony expungements are not typically available until at least eight years have passed, and some convictions are never eligible for expungements and/or require the prosecutor’s consent to file for an expungement, especially cases involving victims and public officials. Dismissed cases that didn’t result in convicions can be expunged at least one year after the arrest if no other charges are pending.

We will pre-screen prospective expungement clients prior to any consultations. If we determine you are not yet eligible during the pre-screening process, we will suggest other options if you still want to file for an expungement. If you are likely eligible, we will schedule a 30-minute consultation and discuss legal and filing fees for your case.
