Would you like to clean up your criminal record?

Michigan Expungement LawyerA mistake from the past doesn't have to haunt you forever. If you are having trouble getting a job or qualifying for a loan due to a conviction on your criminal record, an expungement can help you take your life back.  In Michigan, you may be able to expunge these public records. With an expungement, the record is physically destroyed, and no one, not even law enforcement officials, will ever see it.

Who can apply to make a criminal record nonpublic?

In Michigan, a person may apply to have the conviction “Set Aside” or “Expunged” for any misdemeanor or felony except: (1) a conviction of a felony or attempted felony punishable by life imprisonment; (2) a conviction for criminal sexual conduct; or, (3) a traffic offense.  Michigan allows most misdemeanors and felonies to be expunged from a criminal record so long as the following conditions are met:

  • It's been more than 5 years since your sentence was imposed or completed.
  • You only have one conviction (Certain exceptions apply for minor offenses which occurred on or before your 21st birthday) 
  • You have not had a previous conviction expunged
  • You have been on good behavior during the five-year waiting period (i.e., no subsequent arrests or convictions)
