Cleaning Up Oregon Criminal Records is Now Easier
Effective January 1, 2022, the legislature made it much easier and cheaper to expunge/seal criminal records. You may be able to get criminal dismissals, acquittals, arrests, or older convictions expunged/removed from your record.
Expungement of Eviction Records
Beginning May 19th, 2021, the State of Oregon has expanded eligibility to expunge records of some past evictions. Expungement means that the eviction record is erased. The court treats the eviction as if it never happened. When a prospective landlord searches the tenant’s eviction history, the expunged eviction should not show up. When a prospective landlord asks if an applicant has ever been evicted, the applicant can answer “no” if the eviction has been expunged.
Virtual Expungement Clinic
Is a criminal record holding you back? The Virtual Expungement Clinic may be able to help. The Clinic is a partnership program where volunteer lawyers provide FREE consultations to those who may be eligible for expungement.
