Wisconsin Expungement

Wisconsin Expungement Petition

Petition to Expunge Court Record of Conviction – Non-Probation/ Non-Incarceration

Before an Expungement may be ordered, a Petition must be submitted to the original Court. The original Court is the same court where the matter was adjudicated (tried), decided and ordered the sentence.

Before submitting that form, it is highly likely that it is in your best interest to contact an attorney. While TV shows make trials seem simple, they are not. Expungements are often very difficult to obtain. We highly recommend discussing your case with an attorney before pursuing the Expungement. You may only get one chance at asking for the Expungement. You may want to leave that chance up to a person with the expertise to understand how to make the best of a bad situation: an expungement attorney.

With that warning, please decide if you want to proceed on your own to petition the court. The form to complete and submit to the Court that found the person seeking Expungement guilty of the crime and ordered the sentence can be found at Wisconsin Expungement Court Form.

When a criminal record is expunged, it will no longer appear on CCAP. The Wisconsin Circuit Court records can be accessed via the Internet.
