FAQs

Any conviction on your criminal record can affect your life for many years afterward. While you might feel that a DWI that occurred years ago should not count against you, the truth is that employers, insurers, and even law enforcement officials will still consider it. It’s considered a “prior offense” and may bar you from finding a job, obtaining professional licenses, entering the military, or even engaging in some volunteer activities.

Expungement seals that record, blocking it from public view and limiting access to only a few individuals, such as judges. That means it cannot be used against you when applying for most jobs (but not all), when shopping for auto insurance, or when applying for a professional license.

Are you ready to change your life for the better? Get in touch today to schedule a consultation on your DWI expungement.

While Missouri is one of the few states that allow you to expunge DWIs, you must qualify to clear your criminal record. To do so:

  • Your conviction must be at least 10 years old.
  • You cannot have had another DWI-related charge since then.
  • You must not have previously expunged a DWI.

Note that expungement does not erase license suspension or refusing to take a breath test, as these are civil repercussions, not part of your criminal record.

Understanding DWI Expungements in Missouri

Finding yourself charged with DWI is all too easy. One too many drinks is all it takes to push your blood alcohol content (BAC) over the state’s maximum limit, even if you don’t feel impaired at all.

Once you’ve been arrested and convicted of DWI, the situation only gets worse. You’ll find that your car insurance skyrockets, or maybe your insurer drops you entirely. It could even cost you your job or prevent you from finding a new one.

The good news is that Missouri is one of the few states to expunge DWIs. Contact us today to learn more about DWI expungement and whether you qualify.
