Administered by Oakland County Michigan Works!
New expungement legislation in Michigan takes effect this year, significantly increasing the number of individuals who are now eligible to have their criminal convictions removed from public records.
For persons who have criminal records, expungement opens the door to better jobs, better housing and educational opportunities - a better quality of life.Specific documentation about your felony or misdemeanor will be reviewed and, if it meets the eligibility criteria, the Oakland County Clean Slate Program will help you expunge your record. The first step is to complete a Request for Expungement Services form.
This is a statewide program and applicants should apply in their county of residence.
After you complete the online Request Form, an Oakland County Clean Slate Program representative will contact you with more information on your eligibility and/or next steps.
If you need assistance completing this form please contact your nearest Oakland County Michigan Works! Service Center. See office listing below.
