Expungement

You were arrested for a crime but were never convicted, nor did you ever enter a guilty plea in court. Now you can't find a job, or get into college, or get an apartment because the arrest is still on your criminal history. Call an experienced Atlanta Expungement attorney at The Cohen Law Firm to find out if you are eligible to have the record of this arrest restricted.

You may soon be eligible to apply for expungement of an arrest on your criminal history if:

  • You were acquitted after a jury trial.
  • Your case was dismissed (nolle prossed) after indictment or accusation.
  • You successfully completed a Diversion Program, Conditional Discharge Probation or First Offender Probation.
  • You successfully completed a Drug Court or Mental Health Court program.

You may soon be able to appeal decisions related to your Georgia criminal history:

  • Were you denied correction of an error to your criminal history?
  • Were you denied expungement of your criminal history?
  • Was your request for expungement approved, but your case information still appears on the Clerk Of Court's website?

New laws effective July 1, 2013 dramatically change expungement law in Georgia. Many people who were not formerly eligible, or who have been denied in the past, will now be eligible to have their criminal history expunged. The new laws provide not only for expanded expungement opportunities, but also new avenues to appeal decisions related to your Georgia criminal history.
