How do I clean my North Carolina Criminal Record?

Writing.jpeg

Everyone makes mistakes, but everyone also deserves a chance at redemption. In the state of North Carolina, cleaning your record is referred to as the expungement process. The expungement process can be quite convoluted, and is subjected to several conditions depending on your case. 

Even if your case was dismissed, a charge on your record can still negatively impact your professional aspirations, getting into schools, your insurance, and more. It’s important that you speak with an experienced expungement attorney to make sure your case will be properly handled. At the Law Offices of Wiley Nickel we have attorneys with years of experience handling expungements. We promise to work tirelessly to ensure that you walk away from your case with a clean record. 

Am I eligible for my case to be Expunged? 

There are numerous factors that may allow you to have your charge expunged. Here are some of the more common circumstances.  

  • Age during offense 

  • Were you arrested?

  • Were you convicted?

  • What is the class of offense? 

  • Do you have any prior criminal history?

  • Have you had something expunged in the past?

  • Do traffic violations count?
