Changes to Michigan’s Expungement Laws
Up until recently, expungement in Michigan was limited to one (1) felony and two (2) misdemeanors. This meant that two (2) felonies, no matter the circumstances, were ineligible for Michigan felony expungement. Additionally, all traffic offenses were ineligible for expungement. Quite simply, a lot has changed.
