What is CanIexpunge?

CanIexpunge is an online application that helps people expunge, destroy, or otherwise reduce the negative impacts of criminal records, restore voting rights, and access legal information relating to re-entry, reducing recidivism, and expungement options.

My State Isn't Listed!

We are working on getting the application working for every state, but we need professional legal advisors to manage the data for each state's unique legal processes for expungement and other supported efforts. If you're a lawyer who wants to contribute, or know one who might, or want to donate towards getting one hired for your state, please contact James Gould at jamesagould123 (at)

If you want to donate towards CanIexpunge expanding and adding services, check out our donation page.
