Frequently Asked Questions
- 1. What can be expunged?
In New York, criminal records of crimes where diversion program completed, many drug crimes (upon completion of treatment), charges later dismissed or vacated and non-criminal dispositions (violations and traffic infractions, such as disorderly conduct) may be expunged through the court's legal process. The law may entitle you to an expungement, but only if you take action.
- 2. How much does it cost?
Pay one flat fee – with no hidden charges.
- 3. How long does it take?
Your expungement will be filed within 10 business days of receiving the flat fee, guaranteed. After that, the timing depends on the court's docket, but it usually takes about 2 months from beginning to end.
- 4. Why expunge my record?
Expunging your New York record means you can lawfully deny that you were ever convicted of that crime, allowing you to move on to better jobs, housing, loans, and schools. The law entitles you to an expungement, but only if you take action.
