I think I’m eligible! How do I get an expungement?
STEP 1: Get a Certificate of Eligibility.
You must have a Certificate of Eligibility to get an expungement. This costs $40, and you can request it online here. If you have received a pardon, remember to note that somewhere on your request form.
STEP 2: File your packet and expungement petition with the court.
Once you receive your certification packet, you or your attorney have 30 days to file your documents with the court. After that time, your certification packet will expire.
The Administrative Office of the Courts has prepared a guide to expungement as well. If you have questions about the process, you may e-mail HB40@kycourts.net.
