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.

Client Reviews & Testimonials

  • Absolutely Amazing!

    “This law firm is absolutely amazing! They did a great job in communicating with me in a timely manner, followed through on their word, and I would definitely recommend them to anyone needing legal help.”

  • Casey Baxter is one of the best lawyers

    “Casey Baxter is one of the best lawyers I've worked with. His many years of experience in the courtroom as well as a former prosecutor was apparent in negotiating my specific case. He worked on my case until a resolution was accomplished that he and I both determined was the best outcome for me and all the work he put in for my release, plea and sentencing was performed in a time frame that was appropriate for not only my case but for me as well. I would highly recommend Mr. Baxter for anyone looking to hire a tremendously enthusiastic albeit law savvy attorney. Thanks Casey!”

    Kimberly

  • 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.”
