Expungements

Everyone deserves a second chance. An arrest, charge or conviction can make it difficult to find a job, obtain housing, secure a loan, or to simply improve your life. Fortunately, Indiana law allows many individuals to expunge and seal their criminal records.

Whether an individual was charged with a crime and never convicted or convicted of a misdemeanor or felony, they may be eligible to petition the Court to expunge and seal their records.

Not every case is the same and not all persons are eligible for an expungement. In most cases there is a waiting period of either one (1) year, five (5) years or eight (8) years before an individual can petition the Court for an expungement. However, in many cases, you can file early if you obtain a waiver from the prosecuting attorney of the county in which you are filing.
