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

  • Highest sense of urgency

    “I had a rather complicated case. Multiple states involved and multiple scenarios and issues that arose daily. I found Casey to extremely honest and transparent. I felt he gave me the most specific information he could. I never felt he was dragging or putting my case behind other cases. He gave me information in complete transparency and never said what he thought sounded good to me. He wasn't afraid of the tough conversations. I would highly recommend this lawyer and this firm if you need complete transparency and accurate information. His office staff consist of incredible work ethic and professionalism. They are always available and provide precise appointments and feedback if any is available. I have had a great experience and couldn't be happier with the result of my case as well as the journey to attain that result. Best I have ever used.”
