  • You may be able to get your record expunged earlier if your record is for certain prostitution-related offenses or for another offense that happened because you were a victim of human trafficking. You have to submit a request to the court to start the process, and it is up to the judge whether or not to grant your request.
  You may not be eligible for expungement if you have certain convictions or adjudications on your record, have a pending criminal or juvenile case, or must register as a sex offender.   Find a Lawyer If you think you might be eligible to have your record expunged, find a lawyer who may be able to help you. Some lawyers might help you for free, although you may still need to pay a fee to file the paperwork in court.   Court Forms and Resources If you cannot find a lawyer to help you, you may be able to file a petition on your own using these court forms and resources.
