New Alabama expungement laws allow those with criminal records involving a misdemeanor or nonviolent felony to seek an expungement. This is a very big change in Alabama law since before this there was no way to remove a charge from your record.

Even if you were never convicted or never even faced a trial, your charge remained with you, following you to neighbors, friends and potential or present employers during job or promotion reviews. Now there is a way to clear your record.

Be Able To Legally Say, 'I Have No Criminal Record'

An expungement basically means that the charge or conviction is sealed from the public as though it never existed. After you successfully expunge or seal your criminal record, you can legally tell a present or potential employer that you have no criminal record. This is huge for those who are seeking employment, a promotion or just trying to move on with their lives.

Focusing only on criminal law, I have become extremely knowledgeable in these types of cases. I can go over your specific record and tell you if you are eligible for an expungement. General eligibility guidelines to consider include:

  • The criminal charge was a misdemeanor offense or nonviolent felony
  • The charge was dismissed
  • The charge was no-billed by a grand jury (found to have insufficient evidence)
  • The charged person was found not guilty
  • The charged person successfully completed a drug or mental health program
