Expungements And Record Sealing

A criminal record can hold you back from many important opportunities, including getting accepted for employment, education, loans, government assistance and housing.

In Arkansas, certain criminal records may be sealed (or expunged), making them unavailable to the public. You may be eligible if:

  • You are a first-time offender and successfully complete your probation.
  • You were arrested but not charged.
  • You were charged but the charges were dismissed, acquitted or declared nolle prosequi.

Our criminal law attorneys can help you understand if you are available for record sealing/expungement and, if so, guide you through the legal process.
