Expungement in Louisiana

How to Clean up Your Criminal Record

An expungement is the process of removing a record of arrest or conviction from public view.  The process is not automatic. A motion must be filed with the court requesting that the court order various agencies to remove the record.

Expungement law is a complicated area of law that requires great knowledge of the criminal justice system and the way records are maintained.

Filing an expungement improperly may lead to increased costs in and extended delay in re-filing.  An experienced expungement lawyer may even be able to advise if your record allows for an expungement.
