Montgomery County Clerk of Courts
Expungements/Sealing of Record
You may file for an expungement of a criminal case one year after your conviction date. However, if your case was dismissed you do not need to wait a year from dismissal date to file for an expungement. You must also have no other violations on your record. Traffic records cannot be expunged. There is a $50 fee to file for an expungement.
If you would like to take additional steps to have your record removed from private companies who provide the information for private background checks, Montgomery County Clerk of Courts is partnering with the National Expungement Database Center (NEDC) to provide this service. There is a fee for this service payable to the NEDC. Visit their website for more information. Please note that Montgomery County Clerk of Courts is only providing this information as a resource for customers. Any questions or follow up on the outcome or effectiveness of this service must be directed to NEDC at 1-877-604-2164.
