Question Details:I'am under the age of 18 and have been charged with an misdemeanor crime how would get my record expunged? And how much would it cost?
Most likely $125, plus if you pay an attorney to do it for you whatever that costs:
§ 15A‑145. A person who files a petition for expunction of a criminal record under this section must pay the clerk of superior court a fee of one hundred twenty‑five dollars ($125.00) at the time the petition is filed. Fees collected under this subsection shall be deposited in the General Fund. This subsection does not apply to petitions filed by an indigent.
Although I do not practice law in the State of North Carolina, here are my initial impressions. The general rule is that you cannot pay for a record to be expunged. There is no fee associated with it that takes care of the entire process. However, since you state that you have been charged with a crime, it is possible that you can prevent yourself from getting a record if you can resolve this pending charge favorably. I suggest that you spend your money on an attorney in the interest of keeping your record clean. Good luck.
