In order to get a Kentucky conviction expunged from your record, you would need to first get a certificate of eligibility. Then if you're found eligible, you can petition the court for an expungement, attaching the certificate. You don't need a lawyer to apply for the certificate, but it does cost $40 to file for it. Kentucky tells you how to obtain one and provides you with the forms here.

If your matter was a felony, only certain Class D felonies are eligible for expunction. You can see the list of these here.

You're eligible to expunge a Kentucky misdmeanor 5 years after the completion of your entire sentence.
