Do I Qualify for a Dismissal?

Is your case a California criminal case?

Please note: a DUI is a misdemeanor and thus is a criminal case. But you are Not a criminal! Get this conviction off your record!
Is your case a misdemeanor (see Misdemeanor exceptions that do not qualify for dismissal)?
Please note that DUIs CAN BE DISMISSED!

If you are uncertain about whether or not your case was a misdemeanor, you may contact the clerk of court (criminal division) and inquire.
Did you receive probation? (99% chance that the answer is yes).

If you received probation, is your probation period (typically three to five years long) over?
If you received probation, did you successfully complete probation without being violated? If you did everything that you were ordered to do, then you successfully completed probation.
Have you led a law abiding life since the conviction that you are trying to dismiss? The answer is "YES" if, since your conviction, excluding traffic infractions, you have not been convicted of OR have presently pending any misdemeanor or felony charges.
If you answered "yes" to all six questions, then you should qualify!

Please note: the site is for dismissal of California adult misdemeanors in which probation was granted and successfully completed. If you have questions about misdemeanors in which probation was not granted, misdemeanors in which probation was granted but not successfully completed, dismissal of felony convictions, or juvenile adjudications, this site is not for you. Please consult with an attorney.

If you have a marijuana conviction, or have received deferred entry of judgment or Proposition 36 treatment, please consult an attorney because you may not need to file for dismissal of your conviction. Also, if you have a misdemeanor sex conviction, you may not qualify. Please consult with an attorney.
