Good evening,

Kentucky law requires that you wait at least 5 years from the completion of your probation to file. Assuming you have done so, the first thing you'll need to do as part of the expungement process is file for expungement certification. The steps required to do so are explained here. Once you have the certification, you would then need to within 30 days file the petition for expungement (or have at attorney file it for you). There is a $100 charge for the filing of the petition.

Note that expungements are not automatic. Prosecutors are permitted to oppose expungements and a court is not required to expunge your record if a prosecutor objects

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
