Criminal Record Expungement

information and forms to assist filing for expungement

The Code of Alabama 1975, Section 15-27 allows for the expungement of criminal records in certain circumstances. An Alabama court grants expungements, not ALEA. If you have questions regarding the expungement process, please contact your attorney as ALEA cannot provide advice beyond what is offered here.

Before you file for expungement, you must first obtain a certified copy of your criminal history record from ALEA by following the instructions on this form.

The Alabama Office of Administrative Courts provides a Petition for Expungement of Records on their website. This petition provides instructions about the expungement process.
