Oklahoma recognizes four types of record expungement. Which type a person qualifies for all depends on the offense he or she committed and when he or she committed it. The types of expungement available under Oklahoma law include:

Though any sort of expungement can help your future, most people strive for an 18/19 expungement. Of course, because it is full record expungement, it is not easy to qualify.

Qualifications for an 18/19 Record Expungement

Full record expungement does not mean what most people think it means. Most people assume that “full expungement” means that their entire criminal record is erased. That is not the case.

If an incident qualifies for full expungement, it means that it will be purged from a person’s record at each agency that holds records. These include arresting agencies, the court, and the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation (OSBI). In order to qualify for full expungement, you must fall under one or more of the following categories:

If you meet the above criteria, your record may be cleared and sealed.
