Expungement - Convictions & Central Registry
(loss of essential services)
CURRENT PROJECT: MILS' expungement priority is statewide. But we are currently focusing expungement services in northwestern Michigan. MILS is collaborating with Northwest Michigan Works and Safe and Just Michigan. These partners will assist clients at the beginning of the expungement process. They will help gather the information and documents needed for an attorney to assess their case. MILS will provide legal representation in the expungement court proceedings for income-eligible clients with convictions in the Northwest Michigan region. We are also coordinating with other legal aid providers around the state. These partners will assist income-eligible clients with convictions arising from courts in other areas of Michigan.
Starting in February 2022, a first-time operating while intoxicated offense will be eligible for expungement in certain situations.
