Expunging Your Record in Michigan | Luedke Law Group

Expungement If you’ve been convicted of a crime and want your record expunged in Michigan, we can help. By expunging your record, your criminal conviction will be removed from the public record. This allows you to return to a normal life, as your criminal record will be clean once again. This can make a big difference when applying for a job in Michigan since many employers routinely do a background check these days.

If you’ve had a conviction that is related to a felony or attempted felony that was punishable by life imprisonment, a violation or attempted violation of criminal sexual conduct or a traffic offense, it cannot be expunged. You can also only have one conviction set aside (or “expunged” from your record).

To be considered for an expungement, five years have had to pass since you were sentenced, if you weren’t imprisoned. If you were in jail, then you have to wait until five years have passed since your release.

At your hearing, the prosecutor or the attorney general may attend. That’s why it’s vital for you to have a highly qualified attorney by your side during your request to have your record expunged in Michigan. They will be able to represent you effectively and make sure that your hearing goes smoothly.
