How long do you have to wait before applying for expungement?

Add A New Question Reply to Post

June 1, 2010



I actually volunteer at a homeless shelter, and I'm asking these questions on behalf of a young woman who has been living at the shelter for the past month.

As far as I understand, she can't get a job at the moment because she says she has a criminal record, which mostly consists of stealing (mostly food in grocery stores and gas stations). She's trying to get her life back together, and she says she hasn't done anything illegal in a very long time (at least two years).

The question: Is there a minimum period of waiting before you can apply for an expungement? I really want to encourage her to try and get an expungement, but I don't want to give her any false hope if she has to wait for a long time before getting the expungement. Thank you so much for reading this.


When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears and delivers them out of all their troubles. The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit. (Psalm 34:17-20)
