Michigan has enacted a newer expungement law that has dramatically increased the eligibility for Michigan citizens to set aside criminal convictions and have a second chance at life. The new law will afford Michigan citizens new employment opportunities, educational opportunities, and life opportunities.
Are you eligible to have your criminal convictions expunged from your record?
REQUIREMENTS FOR MICHIGAN EXPUNGEMENT LAW:
A person who is convicted of not more than 1 felony offense and not more than 2 misdemeanor offenses may petition the court to expunge the 1 felony offense
A person who is convicted of not more than 2 misdemeanor offenses may petition the court to expunge the 2 misdemeanor offenses
NOTE: Michigan residents may now expunge a felony even if they have 2 additional misdemeanor offenses on their permanent record. And Michigan residents may now expunge 2 misdemeanors, so long as they only have the two misdemeanor offenses on their permanent record.
NOTE: This is a big change from the former law, which only allowed individuals to expunge 1 offense total, whether that was a qualifying misdemeanor or qualifying felony
