Can I Erase Criminal Charges From My Record?

This is the main question on the minds of many who have been charged with a crime and wish to continue leading productive lives without being hampered by the possibility of a criminal record. Previously referred to as "expungement" in the state of Georgia, and now referred to as record restriction, the process allows for your criminal record to be restricted from public view and only accessible to law enforcement for the purposes of criminal justice.

At the Law Offices of Adam M. Cain, LLC, we have assisted individuals in Athens and throughout the neighboring region with this question. As an experienced record restriction attorney, Adam M. Cain can walk you through the difficulties of the process, helping to place you in a position to achieve future success.

What Is The Record Restriction Process?

In our state, the process depends on several factors, including the date of the arrest and how the case was ultimately resolved. In most cases, those arrested after July 1, 2013, and who were either not indicted, had the charges dismissed, or were acquitted, do not need to apply.

However, many individuals still need to go through the process and apply for record restriction. While the process may seem straightforward, as with anything regarding the justice system, it rarely is. In these instances, our experienced lawyers can assess the merits of your case and advise on the best strategy moving forward, so that we can work toward a lasting, beneficial outcome.
