Review Procedure

All Petitions for Expungement, after filing, must be submitted to the Office of the Commonwealth’s Attorney for their review along with a proposed Expungement Order. A hearing for an expungement will not be set unless one of the following occurs: 1) The Commonwealth’s Attorney does not agree to endorse the proposed Expungement Order; or 2) The Court rejects the signed proposed Expungement Order.


An Expungement is an action used to delete all police and court records pertaining to a criminal case when any of the following has occurred: acquittal, nolle prosequi, dismissal (excluding delayed imposition dismissal), absolute pardon, or an individual’s name used in error. When a record is expunged, the record is not destroyed but removed from public access and sealed. (Note: Once the record is expunged it can only be accessed by Court Order.)

Petitions for Expungement are filed in Civil Intake, Suite 319.
