Expunge Michigan Traffic Offenses - Expungement Lawyer
Michigan Expungement Lawyer Expunge a Michigan Traffic Offense.
The Michigan Legislature significantly broadened the Expungement or Set Aside Conviction statute in 2020, which means many more people can now seek to set aside their criminal convictions. So many who were ineligible under the prior law can now petition to aside one or more of their criminal convictions.
The Michigan Expungement statute, also called the Set Aside Conviction statute, MCL 780.621, was also amended to now allow traffic misdemeanor convictions to be set aside or expunged. The main exception is that drunk driving offenses (OWI DUI), and any traffic offense resulting in physical harm or injury to a person are excluded. Also, even though you can expunge the conviction from your criminal record, the entry remains on your main driving record.
The 2020 change in the expungement law now makes the vast majority of traffic misdemeanor and felony convictions eligible to be set aside if you meet the criteria. See our Expungement Page for details on how you can petition to set aside a criminal conviction or traffic offense.
