Frequently Asked Questions About Expungement

  • What is Expungement?

    Expungement is the process of making an arrest or conviction like it never happened. The court documents are destroyed, and you will be able to legally deny that you were arrested or convicted. The arrest or conviction will also be unsearchable on background checks.

  • Who is eligible for expungement?

    In general, you will be eligible immediately after the charges are dismissed, within 3 years of the date of conviction, or within 1 year of being arrested but not formally charged with a crime. Furthermore, you must complete all sentencing requirements, have no pending cases in any court, and have no other arrests for at least 3 years and no other convictions within the past 10 years, including those in other states.

  • How much does expungement cost?

    In order to expunge an arrest and conviction record in the state of Oregon, you will need to pay 2 fees: $265.00 for the State of Oregon filing fee, and $80.00 for a background check. Other court costs and attorneys’ fees may apply. There are no filing fees for expunging an arrest record in Oregon.

  • How long does the expungement process take?

    Once you file the petition with the court, the process will take about 3 months. The motion will be sent to the district attorney, who will send it to the judge for a signature. Once the judge signs the petition, your record will be sealed. If the district attorney disputes your petition, the process may take longer to resolve.

  • Do I need an Oregon expungement attorney?

    While it is possible to file the petition to expunge your criminal record on your own, it is highly recommended that you obtain legal counsel. The process can be confusing, and requires a thorough understanding of state laws. One mistake on the paperwork could cause your petition to be denied, so it is important to have knowledgeable representation to walk you through the process.

  • All around a FANTASTIC attorney!!!!

    “I would recommend Casey to anyone needing a criminal defense attorney. Casey has fought on my behalf in the Deschutes County court system for almost a year now. He was granted to me as my public defender. I've never seen an attorney work harder for a client. He has been compassionate and supportive...from day one he explained each facet of my case to me in terms I could understand, and walked me through each step of the legal process of my case. Because of Casey's experience and hard work, I was able to present the state with positive proof of my own progress and get two of my charges dismissed and my original charge continued on a conditional discharge. Casey helped me show the state that I had worked very hard to change my life and lifestyle...and he went above and beyond to make sure I was given credit for all of my hard work. All around a FANTASTIC attorney!!!!”

  • Great job, excellent result.

    “Casey Baxter did a great job representing me during the criminal court proceedings and advised me how to best proceed after being arrested for a DUII. As for my criminal case, he guided me through the process to get into the DUII diversion program that will end with a dismissal if all conditions are completed successfully; In addition, Mr. Baxter did an excellent job representing me during the DMV hearing. Even with the hopeful dismissal of my criminal case, I was still facing a 90 day ODL suspension for failing a breath test. After successfully making his arguments to the Administrative Law Judge during the DMV hearing, Casey was able to get a dismissal of my case without any suspension or fine. Casey is a knowledgeable and competent attorney who was able to help me through this difficult time in my life. The dismissal of the ODL suspension (a rare outcome) in particular helped my situation greatly, to say the least. I would surely recommend Mr. Baxter to any person who is in need of a great DUII defense lawyer.”

  • I would highly recommend Mr. Baxter.

    “Mr. Baxter was very helpful and very knowledgeable concerning the specifics of my case. He essentially streamlined the court process for me, which allowed me to focus on the end details of my case, rather than worry about what possible outcomes there could be. Instead of ending up with two convictions, I was able to enroll in the diversion program, take traffic school, and pay the fines. We all make mistakes, and I was very glad that Mr. Baxter was there to help me with my case. I would highly recommend Mr. Baxter.”
