Anderson Expungement Attorney

Your Past Doesn’t Have to Dictate Your Future

In some cases, it is possible to have your criminal record expunged (or, in effect, permanently sealed from public view) even if you have been arrested for or, in some cases, charged with a crime. To be eligible for expungement, you must meet certain specific criteria.

In Indiana, you can only apply to have your criminal record expunged if:

  • You were arrested but never charged with a crime
  • You were charged with a crime, but the charges were later dropped

In most cases, if you were charged with a crime, the charges must have been dropped due to mistaken identity, lack of probable cause, or lack of an actual offense.

If you have questions about expungement, including whether or not you are eligible to have your record expunged, contact Heifner Law Inc. and request a free consultation with our Anderson expungement attorney. Attorney K. Aaron Heifner can help you navigate the process from start to finish, providing answers to your questions and addressing any concerns you may have.

How to Apply for Expungement in Indiana

The process of applying to have your record expunged in Indiana is not necessarily complicated, but it is absolutely crucial that you follow every required step. Mistakes in your application could cost you in the form of unnecessary delays and/or failure to have your request approved.

To apply to have your criminal record expunged, you will need to do the following:

  • Complete the petition for expungement of criminal records; this may be typed or handwritten and should provide relevant information, including the date of arrest, the arresting officer’s name and employer, your Social Security number, and more
  • Sign the petition and make three additional copies for filing
  • The petition must be filed with the court that maintains jurisdiction over the case; if you were arrested, this is the court that has jurisdiction over the county where the arrest occurred and if you were charged, this will be the court where the charges were filed against you
  • The first copy of the petition must be served to the law enforcement agency that was responsible for arresting you or that has your arrest records, as well as the Indiana State Police central records repository
  • The second copy should be mailed to the state central records repository by certified mail
  • Keep the third copy of your petition for your own personal records; this may be needed again if you are required to attend a hearing in regards to your request for expungement

If your petition is approved, you may be required to attend a hearing. The expungement process can be lengthy and there are numerous steps you must take. It is best to consult with an experienced attorney in order to better your chances of a successful outcome.
