Record Expungement

Expungement Can Remove The Last Road Block To The Job You Have Always Wanted.

I am attorney Benham Sims and I have handled hundreds of expungements as a defense attorney, prosecutor and judge. I meet with clients every week who are under the mistaken impression that if a criminal charge was dismissed, then the charges are removed (expunged) from their record. Remember, criminal charges will stay on your criminal record forever unless you file a motion with the court to expunge your record. If expungement is an option for you, it may remove the last road block to the job you have always wanted.

Dismissed Or Guilty cases?

If all the charges were dismissed against you, I can seek to expunge your record 60 days after the dismissal of your charges. If you pled guilty to a misdemeanor and have no other criminal record, I can prepare a motion and order to expunge your misdemeanor record five years after the end of your sentence or probation.Call my office at (502) 498-0000 for a free consultation or contact us online.

Most misdemeanor expungements cost between $250 for legal fees, $40 for your criminal records, $100 for your state filing fee.
Felony expungements typically run from $1,500- $2,500. However, these fees may vary in light of your particular circumstance, the amount of work involved and the number of charges involved in your case.

In addition, the Kentucky Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC) charges a $100 processing fee for expungements of guilty pleas. They charge a $500 fee for Felony pleas.
