Cleaning Up Criminal Records
At the Law Office of Charles L. Morgan, Jr., we understand the difficulties you face if you have a criminal record. You may not be able to get a job and you might be disqualified from renting a place to live. In the end, your criminal record can weigh you down because it could make you ineligible for any number of opportunities.
As your Charlotte attorney for expungements, Chuck Morgan will assist you in getting your criminal record cleared. Many times, it is a simple matter of making sure your record is expunged after criminal charges have been dismissed against you. At other times, you may have committed a crime when you were a juvenile, but that mistake has been carried over on your permanent record.
Mecklenburg County Felony Expungement Attorney
In the state of North Carolina, certain types of misdemeanor and felony charges can be expunged. Most traffic violations are infractions and do not qualify for expungement. The general rule is that you are entitled to one expungement in your lifetime.
To obtain an expungement, you are required to submit the following forms in the clerk of the court in the county where the original charges were filed. These include:
- A motion for expungement of your criminal record
- An expungement order
- A request and reports for conviction/expungement dismissal and discharge form
As an experienced law firm, our lawyer can help you fill out these forms and make sure everything meets the legal requirements, so that the process is as smooth and easy as possible.
Am I Eligible for Expungement?
According to the state of North Carolina, you may be eligible for expungement if:
- Before you were 18 years old, you were convicted of a misdemeanor crime
- Before you were 21 years old, you were convicted of misdemeanor possession of alcohol
- You were charged with a crime, but found not guilty or the case was dismissed
- Charges were dismissed because you were the victim of identity theft
