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

  • Saved my life

    “Thank you all for the hard work. I was facing three felonies which thanks to Casey Baxter, Thaddeus Bentz, and Amy Margolis was able to plea to one misdemeanor. You guys saved my life!!”

  • Gift from God

    “Well I was recommended to Me Baxter from another local attorney that handled my complicated caseloads for years before we had a falling out due to my inability to communicate. So I have God on my side and some criminal and civil cases that are very complex and from what I've heard and my faith that God has pointed me in the right direction I look forward to working with Casey and his team!”

  • Casey is an awesome attorney.

    “He is very intelligent and knows how to get great results. He was there me and my wife during a very scary time when we really needed someone in our corner. He was always there to answer any questions we had and was able to get our legal matters settled with great results. We would have been a sinking ship without Casey!”

    Chester

  • Highly Recommend

    “I actually hired Casey based on the reviews from Avvo. Since I live in WA, but got my DUII in Oregon, my situation was a little different than some, but Casey has been able to answer my questions all through the process. My case was pretty standard as to what was going to happen (and did happen). Mostly, Casey eased my fears with the whole process and made the ordeal much easier than if I had tried to handle this on my own. ”

  • 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!!!!”
