Expungement/Record Restriction/Registry Removal

An expungement (now “record restriction” in Georgia) proceeding is typically an action in which a first time offender seeks that records of that earlier process be restricted or sealed, making the records unavailable through most state repositories. While expungement deals with an underlying criminal record, it is an administrative or civil action in which the subject is the petitioner or plaintiff asking a court to declare that the records be restricted or sealed. Mr. Post has considerable experience in handling these cases.

When you get notice of the government’s intent to place you on the state child abuse registry, do NOT delay. The consequences of the registry are often severe even if you are not charged with a crime and have done nothing wrong.

We are here for you when dealing with sex offender registry matters too. If you have been on the Georgia registry for over ten years (and sometimes less) you may be eligible for removal. Please contact our office to schedule an appointment to discuss your options.
