  • Expungement App- Justice and Accountability Center of LA (JAC)

    JAC has created several guides and checklists to assist individuals navigating the expungement system without an attorney. These resources are informational and are not legal advice. Always consult with an attorney about your particular situation. The expungement app will help you determine whether or not you can get your criminal record expunged under Louisiana Law. Although this app does not provide legal advice, it can help you assess your potential eligibility for expungement and help you prepare for a meeting with an attorney. There is no charge to check your eligibility. The app can also generate pre-filled forms to file for an expungement in court. It costs $20 to download the forms. Read More
