What's the process of getting something expunged off your record? It's preventing me from getting a great job? Any advice will help. :~)

And a couple are 20+ years old. Does it stop showing up on your record after so many years? My husband had his record completely expunged years ago! He had one of the best lawyers in the state. I will do whatever it takes. Classes, fine, and/or community service???

Research state laws on CPS expungement. Since each state has different regulation that you must follow to expunge your old CPS case. You can also file a request with the state department over the CPS cases. Read more on http://www.ehow.com/how_8740057_expunge-closed-cps-case.html.

Thank you very much! Wish me luck. I'm going to need it. I have an extensive record unfortunately. All traffic infractions and one felony? :(

To have your record expunged, you can't have more than 1 felony. Usually a period of time has to be in place and your records ca not show any other crimes. Good luck. Everyone deserves a second chance.

I know, my son made a mistake at the age of 18. He paid the price and has been clean ever since. He has his record expunged about 10 years later and now has a position in management making good money.

You live and learn. I have paid dearly. Haven't drove in years. And the money, classes, and community service all added up to thousands. I don't drink anymore. And I am so thankful I didn't hurt, or kill someone. I am lucky to be alive. Thank you for being so understanding. I hope I can at least get a few things taken off. I mean a couple things are 20 something years old. The last 6 years ago??? :~)

You seem like a smart and caring person. You've made mistakes, (don't we all?) you've learned from them. I hope you can get all this behind you and go on with life. I really do wish you the best.
