Clearing Your Criminal Record Through Expungement

Beginning in January 2020, it will become even easier to clear your criminal record.  Under the Criminal Records Expungement Act, NMSA 1978, § 29-3A-1 through -7, signed into law by Governor Michelle Lujan-Grisham, individuals with criminal records or arrest records may expunge or clear these records under new streamlined legal procedures.

How to Clear or Expunge Your Record?

If you have been cleared of all charges, or have served your time and paid your fines, you should be allowed to turn your life around. Clearing your name by expunging your record can help you to get back on track and move on with your life.

What is Expungement?

In most cases, expungement means the court case and the arrest will be treated as if they never occurred. When records are expunged, agencies and courts are required by law to say no such record exists. If a member of the general public tries to look up your record, and it has been expunged, the website will show no such record. If a member of the general public contacts an agency or court seeking information about you, and your record has been expunged, the agency or court official is required by law to reply that no such record exists. To see if you are eligible for expungement, call the Law Office of Scott M. Davidson and schedule a consultation. You may call our office at 505-255-9084 or contact us through this website to make an appointment.

Can my Dismissed or Dropped Charges be Cleared?
