I noticed you requested a phone call, and I'm happy to speak with you over the phone, but it appears there was an issue with processing payment for it.

GA has some relatively strict limitations on which cases can be expunged.

In order to find out whether your case would qualify, can you please answer the prior questions I sent?

I'll re-type them below:

(1.) What was the final disposititon on your case, was it closed with a conviction?

(2.) Was it charged as a youthful offender?

1. i guess it was a convection im not sure about question 2
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I'm guessing to the question number one it was a conviction because I got probation for it I'm not sure about the question number 2

Thanks for your responses to my questions.

Unfortunately I don't have the best news. Under GA law, if the case was closed with a conviction then it is not eligible for expungement.

Convicitions cannot be expunged under GA law.

If however your case was closed with a dismissal -- which often happens for first time offenders who enroll in a pre trial diversion program -- then it can be expunged. You actually would no longer even need to fill out an application for this, but rather the prosecutor can order it in court at the close of the case.

Based on the information you shared though, having been on probation, etc. it does sound likely that the case did close with a conviction.

To be sure, you can go into the Clerk's Office at the courthouse where the case was heard, and request a copy of your final case disposition. This will state definitively whether or not it was a conviction.

I hope that helps!

Please let me know if you have any other questions. Also, please take a moment to rate me using the stars at the top of the page, as it's the only way experts are compensated for our time on the site. I do not receive a salary here at JustAnswer, and am only compensated for my time after receiving a rating of 3 stars or more (5 stars are always appreciated). The question won't close after rating, so you can still ask follow-up questions after. Thanks, ***** ***** it!
