RECORD CLEARING (EXPUNGEMENT)

GJP assists individuals who have a Georgia criminal history and face barriers to opportunity.

4.5 million people have a Georgia criminal history; approximately 40% of adults.

Over two decades ago, Georgia Justice Project began offering criminal records services after seeing firsthand the barriers caused by a criminal record for our clients.

We assist with:

  • Record restriction and sealing, commonly known as expungement.
  • Record corrections
  • Pardons

In some instances, we may be able to help with:

  • Occupational licensing denial due to a criminal record

It is required to attend a GJP “First Fridays” session before applying for GJP’s services. These sessions occur on the first Friday of every month, and include information on how to read your record, what is eligible for expungement in Georgia, how to apply for a pardon, and how to apply to GJP’s services.

NOTE: Intake for the Criminal Records Program is closed and will not accept any new applications from November 1, 2022 through January 1, 2023. We will resume accepting new applications and responding to all new inquiries for criminal records assistance once we reopen intake in January. If you received an application before November 1st, but returned your completed application during our closure period, please note that we will not process your application until our intake reopens on Monday, January 2, 2023.

We will continue to host First Friday presentations while the Criminal Records intake is closed. If you submitted an application for criminal records assistance before November 1, 2022, or if you are a current client, you may contact Hunter Callaway at 404-827-0027 ext. 264 for an update.
