Pennsylvania’s expungement and Clean Slate laws allow some criminal records to be expunged (removed) or sealed (taken out of public view) so they cannot be used as barriers to employment, housing, etc.

A Legal Aid of Southeastern Pennsylvania attorney will provide information about the laws, then will help you screen your Pennsylvania record for FREE and tell you whether or not and how you can clear it.

You will learn:

  • What is on your record in Pennsylvania
  • Whether or not it can be expunged or sealed
  • How to get help clearing your record
