How Does My Criminal Record Affect Me?

A criminal record can create difficult downstream consequences whether you were arrested or convicted (or both).


Landlords commonly ask renters whether they have ever been convicted of a criminal offense, and might not rent to people who answer "yes."

Child Custody

Having a criminal record may limit child custody rights, especially if the charges involve violent acts or instances of domestic abuse.


Criminal convictions can often make it more difficult for a person to find employment. Most employers require criminal background checks.

Constitutional Rights

Having a felony conviction can effect some of your rights under the Constitution, like the right to vote and the right to carry or possess a fire arm.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is expungement important?

Expungement gives you a clean slate. Having criminal charges on your record can prevent you from finding employment, public housing, and other government services. Expunging your criminal record can make accessing work, housing, and services easier.

How much does expungement cost?

Because some cases are more complex then others, the cost is not set in stone. The fee that we charge for a single, non-tried expungement is $895.00. This includes the $195 filing fee that is required for expungements in Kansas District Courts.

What is expungeable?

The answer to this question is a difficult one. There are many factors that determine if your record is expungeable. This difficulty is why we created ExpungeKS. By using this questionnaire you will be able to get to the bottom of whether or not your case is expungeable.

What if my criminal record is in a state other than Kansas?

ExpungeKS only operates to expunge your criminal record in Kansas. You’ll need to contact an attorney or legal aid service in the state and jurisdiction where your criminal record originated.

How long does the process take?

Depending on the crime and the jurisdiction the time it takes to expunge your convictions will vary. The range of time is between 40 and 90 days. More time may be required once the expungement is finalized for your record to truly be expunged.

What do I do if I don’t know all the facts about my criminal record?

At the very least you will need to know the county or court where you were convicted or charged. Armed with that information you can find the contact information of that court ( and call to request a copy of the record you are wanting to expunge. Obtaining a journal entry of sentencing or a journal entry of judgment will be a good start in obtaining all the information you will need.
