Legal Aid of North Carolina’s free criminal record expungement clinic explains North Carolina expunction law to help you determine if you are eligible to have one or more charges removed from your criminal record (watch the instructional video below). You can also ask general questions to a volunteer attorney, however, specific advice is not provided. If you determine you qualify for an expunction during the clinic, you can request a callback from Legal Aid to go through a phone screening for additional assistance. Legal Aid services are free of charge. Clinics are located in many N.C. counties. If you do not see a clinic in your city or county, please check the surrounding counties in your area. You can also call the Legal Aid Helpline directly at 866-219-5262, because Legal Aid assists with some expungement cases if you qualify for additional services.
