There are 36 counties in Oregon, and the process of expungement varies between them. Most misdemeanor crimes and Class C felonies can be expunged. To determine the eligibility of the convicted crime you wish to expunge, it must comply with the following:
- An application must be submitted no earlier than three years from the date of conviction.
- You are not currently being prosecuted for a crime.
- You have not gotten a conviction on your record in the past 10 years.
- You must have concluded all requirements given to you by the court.
These requirements are for a crime that you have been convicted for committing. There are certain convictions that are not eligible for expungement. These include most Class A and B convictions, sex crimes, traffic violations, child endangerment or abuse, driving under the influence of intoxicants (DUII) and most violent crimes.
There are base fees for filing expungement. These include a $252 fee for filing a request to the court and an $80 background check fee. Attorney costs for expungement can vary due to what the client’s specific needs are. If a client has completed the expungement filings but would like them reviewed for accuracy, that could cost less than hiring a lawyer to take care of everything. Hiring an expungement attorney is the best option to ensure that you get the best results of your case.
