Louisville Felony Expungement Attorney

Expungement Attorney for All Felony Classes in Kentucky

Expungement is the process of removing criminal records from all government-controlled databases by obtaining a Court Order that requires these kinds of records to be sealed. The difference between most expungement cases and a felony expungement case is the addition of exclusions set out in the Kentucky Revised Statutes. You owe it to yourself to find out if you qualify. Even if there is no conviction, records of arrest and prosecution remain on a criminal record.

There are numerous reasons why an individual would wish to have their record expunged, including:

  • They are unable to apply for jobs with a criminal record
  • They are unable to apply for a lease to an apartment or home
  • They were not convicted and do not want any record of their criminal case mentioned in any governmental system
  • They were falsely arrested due to identity confusion and other errors of governmental authority

Who Is Eligible for Felony Expungements in KY?

In the state of Kentucky, many felonies are not eligible for expungement. Recently, however, the Kentucky Senate passed House Bill 40, allowing some Class D felonies to also be expunged and giving many felons a second chance at a clean start. You cannot begin the expungement application process unless five years have passed since you completed your sentencing or five years after you have completed your probation and its terms and conditions.

Felony Expungement Application Process

Once you have completed the prerequisites for the application, you can begin the expungement process. To begin the expungement process, you must request an expungement certificate from the Administrative Office of the court. Upon completion, you submit the form to the county the conviction took place in, along with a filing fee. The prosecutor then has 60 days to object to your expungement request. If no objections are made, you will pay an expungement fee to suppress your felony conviction. The expungement will affectively suppress your criminal record from any state performed background checks.
