Expungement

Johnson City Expungement Attorneys

Expungement Laws in Tennessee

In Tennessee, all dismissed charges and even some convictions can be expunged, or removed from an individual’s record so that they no longer appear in background checks. This is a separate process from the dismissal of the charges against you and many people do not realize that the charge remains on their permanent record until it is too late.

Our expungement lawyers in Johnson City are dedicated to proactively investigating your record and filing the appropriate documents with the court to get your record expunged. The Meade Law Group is dedicated to protecting our clients’ best interests.

Take advantage of every avenue available to bounce back and contact the Meade Law Group today to investigate whether expungement may be right for you.

Tennessee Expungement Eligibility

Not all convictions are eligible for expungement, and in some rare cases it may not be in your best interest to expunge a charge at a certain time. You should always consult with a knowledgeable expungement attorney in Kingsport, TN to learn if an expungement is right for your conviction.

Eligibility requirements for expungement include, but are not limited to the following:

  • You can only have one criminal conviction on your record
  • You must have completed your punishment, including probation or jail time
  • Five years must have passed from the time you completed your sentence

In addition, if your charges were dismissed, you received a not guilty verdict at trial, prosecution did not pursue your case, or an order was dismissed, among other issues, your record may be eligible to be sealed, especially if it has caused issues with jobs, housing, loans, or professional licenses.
