I had ARD for a DUI years ago. I was told that my record was to be expunged upon completion of the ARD program. What can I do? Will there be a record expungement from my ARD?
Unfortunately, in some counties in PA the expungement is not automatic upon completion of ARD and in some counties it automatic and is included in the fine. You can file a motion for expungement in the Court of Common Pleas in the county in PA in which your DUI and subsequent ARD occurred. Most people hire a lawyer for this, but you technically can do it yourself. Hiring a lawyer for this is usually better because the lawyer can make sure that the record itself is actually destroyed after the judge grants the expungement.
