In Pennsylvania, expungement can typically take between four to six months to process. Our job at Shoaf and Wencker is to first and foremost make sure that you are eligible. Expungement lawyers need to assure that you are 100% eligible before going forward, to avoid wasting your time. There are many items that Pennsylvania expungement lawyers can leverage to state your case, including what your previous criminal record looks like, the crime you are trying to expunge, how much it will hurt your financial status, and more. For instance, if the crime you are trying to expunge is a felony or misdemeanor, the court will not process it unless you have been granted a pardon.
