GET YOUR RECORD EXPUNGED AND SEALED!!!

EXPUNGEMENT LAW AND QUALIFICATIONS

In July 2014, people who have faced charges in Alabama for traffic violations, municipal ordinances, violations and misdemeanors may have records expunged based on the following qualifications:

  • The charge was dismissed with prejudice;
  • The charge was no-billed by a grand jury;
  • The person was found not guilty; or
  • The charge was dismissed without prejudice, more than two years have passed, the charges have not been refiled and the defendant has not been convicted of anything other than a minor traffic violation.

A person may expunge records relating to a NONVIOLENT FELONY charge if any of the following conditions are met:

  • The charge was dismissed with prejudice;
  • The charge was no-billed by a grand jury;
  • The person was found not guilty;
  • The charge was dismissed after successful completion of a drug court program, mental health court program, diversion program, veteran's court or any other approved deferred prosecution program; or
  • The charge was dimissed without prejudice more than five years ago, the charges have not been refiled and the defendant has not been accused of anything other than a minor traffic violation.

If you meet the above conditions, your records will not be automatically expunged. That's where we come in!! Contact us at the Coaxum Firm LLC

We Also Expunge Juvenile Records

An individual may have his or her juvenile record sealed if he or she meets the following requirements:

  • Individual has not been adjudicated delinquent or a youthful offender of any felony or misdemeanor involving drugs, weapons, violence, or sexual offenses
  • Individual has no pending charge of any misdemeanor or felony involving drugs, violence, weapons, or sexual offenses
  • Two years have elapsed since either the final discharge of the person from legal custody or any other final order of the court not involving custody or supervision

It is important to note that the sealing of a record is not an erasure. Certain entities, such as hospitals and other health care providers, will be able to access this record with permission from the court. Additionally, the sealing order will be nullified if the individual is subsequently adjudicated a youthful offender, delinquent, or convicted of a misdemeanor or felony involving drugs, sexual offenses, weapons, threats of violence, or violence.
