Criminal Record Expungement Clinic

Legal Aid of North Carolina’s free 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. You can also ask general questions to a volunteer attorney through a webinar. Specific legal advice is not provided at this clinic. If you determine that you qualify for an expunction during the clinic, you can request additional assistance from Legal Aid. Our services are completely free. 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. Read our FAQ to learn more.
