Can My Record Be Expunged?

The answer to this depends on the criminal accusation and the result of your case. Instead of assuming your record can be "erased," speak with a lawyer to know for sure. At Shults Law Office, our attorney has the resources to seek a successful petition and help you move forward if you are eligible for an expungement.

For help finding out if you qualify for an expungement, give us a call at 865-280-1084 today. Your first consultation with us at our Sevierville office is free of charge.

Are Expungements Expensive?

An expungement is the process by which the legal footprints of a criminal offense are essentially erased from public records. Generally, there is a cost to file an expungement. However, in the state of Tennessee, it may be possible to expunge a misdemeanor or felony without incurring a fee.

Listed below are some situations in which you may be eligible to receive a free expungement:

  • The plaintiff abandoned their suit against you
  • You were tried and found not guilty
  • Charges against you were dropped
  • There was an arrest but no formal charge

For more information on these specific circumstances, or how you may be able to receive an expungement for other types of cases, we recommend that you seek legal counsel.

Do I Really Need To Expunge My Case?

A criminal conviction often places limitations and can even restrict the way clients live. With a criminal record, it may be difficult to obtain decent housing, to get approval for financial assistance or to advance professionally. We aim to change this by helping clients navigate through the complicated process of an expungement.

If you or someone you know need help moving on from an unfortunate incident, reach out to us. Since every case is unique, it is best to set up your free consultation sooner, rather than later. Call our office at 865-280-1084 or use our online contact form to consult our knowledgeable attorney today.
