Expungement in North Carolina

Licensed Criminal Record Clearing Attorneys Serving All of North Carolina


North Carolina has several remedies that provide record clearing and rights restoration relief. A clean record or restoration of your rights can mean greater job opportunities and an improved quality of life. North Carolina offers a wide variety of services, including adult expungement and juvenile expungement, as well as firearm rights restoration. Unfortunately, for any conviction that occurred while you were 22 years of age or older, there is a 15 year waiting period to expunge your conviction and you must have no other convictions, except for traffic violations.

Why Expunge a North Carolina Record

With more than 80 percent of employers conducting criminal background checks, clearing your record can be the key to a better paying job and a great investment in yourself. Take our free online evaluation to see what type of record clearing you are eligible for.

How to Expunge your North Carolina Record

Under North Carolina expungement law, most adult convictions have a 15 year waiting period before you can expunge the case. Convictions for certain other offenses, such as drug offenses committed before the age of 21 and offenses committed before the age of 18, may be expunged sooner. Some serious felonies and sex offenses are never eligible to be expunged.
