How Much Does an Expungement Cost... and Why is it Worth It?

The job market is tough nowadays, and a job hunt becomes a nightmare if you’re one of the over 65 million US citizens with a felony on their record. Jobs for people with criminal records are scarce, and even if you find them, jobs that hire with a criminal record are usually entry level, with little responsibility and of course low pay. 

Jobs Without Criminal Background Checks

With public background checks being so widespread and easy to request, government jobs and other higher-level jobs fall quickly out of reach if you have as much as a misdemeanor in your criminal records; Oklahoma does not usually offer much by way of jobs without criminal background checks.

If you made a mistake in your youth that left a stain on your record, clearing your criminal record is paramount to give you access to the job, education and life opportunities you want and deserve.

Clearing Your Criminal Record

So, how do you get your records sealed?

A criminal record expungement is the best way to seal criminal records so they do not appear in any criminal records check - in this way you can practically erase criminal records like they never happened.

Oklahoma expungement law has recently changed to allow more people to get an expungement in Oklahoma, and the expungement lawyer cost is a worthwhile investment in your future.

How Much Does An Expungement Cost?

Just as important, how much does an expungement cost?

The long answer is that it depends on the complexity of the case - if you already have a governor's pardon, if you have court records in more than one county, if you’re in the sex offender registry… all of these factors affect the final expungement attorney fees.

An Oklahoma expungement attorney will make their best effort to get you a full expungement, but even a partial expungement will make a big difference to a criminal background check, and the improved job opportunities will quickly recoup the cost of an expungement.

The short answer is that attorney fees usually range between $350-$1500 per criminal incident. Filing fees are usually around $150 per county.
