Hello,

I am the JustAnswer expert that will be helping you today. I am a lawyer with 25 years experience. Although I am not your attorney, I hope that I can give you helpful legal information.

In order to expunge a conviction from your record and restore your gun rights you must file a motion with the court and a copy of the motion with the Prosecuting Attorney’s office for the county in which you were arrested.

Some agencies supply “packets” for expungement. If the county you were arrested in does not supply them, you may purchase a packet on line. Here is one site: http://www.uslegalforms.com/or/OR-EXPCRI-01C.htm

Good luck.
