Are You Eligible For a Misdemeanor Expungement in California?

Take the first steps to a better life now by taking our free online evaluation.

California Penal Code 1203.4 allows for those convicted of most misdemeanors and felonies to have their case reopened, the finding of guilt withdrawn and the case dismissed (expunged). Once expunged, the conviction comes off of their record and they can truthfully say they were never convicted.

To be eligible for California expungement, you must have completed probation (or wait one year on low level misdemeanors or infractions where no probation is given), paid all fines and restitution, and not be facing any other charges or serving any other sentence. A few offenses are not eligible.

How Long Does a Misdemeanor Expungement Take in California?

The typical case in California takes between 2 to 4 months, but times vary by court. We start the same day you sign up. The courts operate on a first-come, first-served basis, so the sooner you start, the sooner your record is cleared.

Our flat-fee price includes all costs. We will conduct the research, file the necessary motions, respond to written or oral opposition from the District attorney, and send one of our attorneys to court to argue the case in front of the judge.

In most cases, you will not have to physically appear in court. You can let us handle all the work, while we keep you updated— you can even track the progress of your case online.

We have a money-back guarantee on most cases. We also have a low-price guarantee. Just show us a competitor’s quote or ad and we will be glad to match it.

We succeed on more than 97 percent of our California cases. Each case is different. The older the case is and the more positive accomplishments that we can point to in your life, the better the chances of success.

Due to the increased amount of work involved for cases involving vehicle offenses, including DUIs, and cases with a violation of the terms of probation, we charge an additional $200, and the money-back guarantee is 50% (minus the Filing and Processing fee) instead of the normal 100% money-back guarantee (minus the Filing and Processing fee).

Our exclusive Expedited Record Clearance Update service allows us to have the leading background check companies reflect changes to your criminal record in less than 14 days, instead of months and even years like our competitors.
