Arkansas Expungements
Criminal Record Sealing and Expungement
Improve your future by correcting your past!

In today's criminal justice system, courts can sentence offenders to a term of imprisonment in jail or prison, a fine, probation, and many other options. When the terms of the sentence are complete, having paid his or her debt to society, the offender has "done the time." However, offenders soon learn that the sentence imposed by the court is only the beginning of the consequences they will suffer from the conviction.

The collateral consequences of a conviction often drastically outweigh the time lost to incarceration or probation and the money spent on fines and court costs. These consequences include the loss of voting rights, inability to obtain occupational and professional licenses, restrictions on the possession of firearms and ammunition, and the loss of important social support and benefits. Unfortunately, these consequences frequently prevent even the most reformed offenders from successfully reentering society leaving them with few options beyond the criminal lifestyle.

Many of the consequences resulting from a criminal conviction can be mitigated by expungement of the conviction and sealing the records of the arrest and conviction. Arkansas Expungements is prepared to help you do just that.

Services


Arkansas Expungements accepts cases anywhere in Arkansas. We start by obtaining your official criminal record. We then review your record and the disposition of each case to determine if you satisfy the statutory requirements for having your record sealed. If you are eligible, we prepare the petition for your review and signature. After that, we file the petition on your behalf and attend any hearings required by the court. If the court grants your petition, we follow up to ensure your record is corrected. If the court denies your petition, we describe why and explain what your options are moving forward.

Sure, but the initial consultation is always done over the phone.

We do not accept payment plans, but we do accept credit cards. Every client starts with the background check, which is how we determine if the client is eligible for expungement. The background check is only $150.

There are several different statutory methods for expunging a conviction. Each method has its own eligibility requirements. The first step in determining if you are eligible is obtaining your official criminal history. Once we have that, we can take a closer look at the circumstances of your case to determine your eligibility for the various methods of expungement. If you are eligible, we draft the expungement petition and file it with the appropriate court.

$150 to obtain and analyze your background and case records to determine if you are eligible for expungement, and $350 for preparation of the petition. The total cost is $500. There are no hidden fees or costs. If you have multiple cases that need to be expunged, the additional cost is $350 for each additional case because each case will require a separate petition.

In some cases, the whole process is completed in 30 days. Unfortunately, some courts have congested dockets and the process takes several months or longer.

We suggest that you follow up with that attorney to make sure they actually completed the work.
