Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.
Luckily for your son there is a process in North Carolina that specifically grants the ability to seek an expungement of commitment records. Below I will post the code which expressly lists the process and the steps necessary. You can retain an attorney, it is possible, but it may be a bit time consuming.
Please look to NCGS Sec. 122C-54.1. Restoration process to remove mental commitment bar.
Hope that helps and good luck to you and to your son!
Thank you for your follow-up.
As I had no idea what you were seeking, I provided to you the actual code to bypass involuntary commitment. beyond that the history remains on file and cannot be expunged directly--I have been looking for other code for you and have not found it, permitting me to conclude that there is no state specific process in place. There is no ability to expunge the court records, and that means that this will appear as a background check, and likewise would need to be disclosed as far as a security check.
