Expungement Search

Is this tool right for me?

This tool creates a petition for expungement for dismissed and not guilty charges using case information provided by the user.

The user must file the petition in court using the directions provided.

This tool will not recognize the case if you were found guilty or pled guilty to any charge on that case. If you are seeking expungement of a charge you were convicted of, this tool is not for you, and you should consult an attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney, you may be eligible for advice or assistance from one of North Carolina's free legal service providers. For additional information about legal resources, click here
