ALABAMA EXPUNGEMENT BILL UPDATE

Alabama Expungement Bill Waiting For Governors Signature

The Alabama expungement bill has passed both the house and senate and is awaiting the Governor’s signature.  The bill would allow the expungement of misdemeanor and some felony criminal records where the person involved was acquitted or the case was dismissed or nol prossed.

If signed, the new Alabama expungement law would require a petition be filed in court and a filing fee be paid.  The prosecutor and the victim, if any, would also have to be informed of the petition and given a chance to object to the expungement of the criminal record.

Under the Alabama expungement law the filing fee for the petition would be $300.00.  As always, we would advise anyone interested in having a criminal  record expunged to contact an Alabama criminal defense attorney for assistance.
