Can I Get My Misdemeanor Domestic Violence Conviction Expunged?

Yes, it is possible to expunge a misdemeanor domestic violence conviction from your record. The Court will need to make a finding that the benefit of granting you expungement relief outweighs the detriment to society in not knowing about your conviction. The relief granted by the Court in a successful expungement proceeding where there is a conviction is limited to sealing the courthouse file. The judge has no authority to order the sealing of local police department or BCA records.
