Get Your Record Expunged in Michigan

There are numerous laws and regulations related to having a criminal record expunged. The fewer convictions you have on your record  the more likely it is that you will be able to pursue expungement, however recent law changes have made it possible to have multiple offenses cleared in some cases. Michigan expungement law originally stated that a clear record would only be granted to individuals who had a single charge on record, which does not include multiple charges included in the same criminal complaint. Recent changes to the law now allow for expungement of up to two misdemeanor offenses (if those are the only two convictions on a persons record) or one felony offense (if a person has one felony and up to two misdemeanors on their record).

You will have to wait 5 years to have your record expunged and can only have the specified type and number of offenses on record. It is crucial that you contact a lawyer and find out more about your legal options and what you need to do to fight for a clear record.

Expunging an Offense From Your Criminal Record in Lansing, MI

Even if you only have one offense on your record, expungement might not be an option. Felonies that carry a max sentence of life in prison cannot be cleared from your record, along with attempts to commit such felonies. Criminal Sexual Conduct charges in the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd degree can also not be cleared from your record. Additionally, traffic violations will stay on your record.

If your record can be cleared, you will have to file a motion to set aside conviction. If you plead guilty to an offense, were found guilty, or plead nolo contendre, you will have a criminal record. It may be difficult to find work, go to school, obtain loans, travel, or live where you want if you have a criminal record, and it is very important that you fight for a quick expungement if possible.
