Video Transcribed: How do I check the status of my Oklahoma expungement? I’m Tulsa expungement attorney James Wirth, and that’s the question that I’m presented with today is how do I check the status. So, first off, if you’re filing for an expungement, you have representation, obviously, contact your attorney.
They can generally tell you what the status of your case is. If you’re doing it on your own, or you already have it where it’s granted, but you want to make sure and you want to check the status to see if it’s been fully processed, then you can go online.
If it’s section 18 where you did not get a deferred sentence, and you’re looking to see whether the expungement is taking place for court records, court records in Oklahoma are available online. All counties are available on oscn.net, but some counties are native to Odcr.com.
After it has been successfully removed, if you put it in that case number, it’ll show that no case shows up with that case number. So that’s how you can check it there, but it’s not just the public court records that you’ll want to check.
It’s also your arrest record with OSBI. So you can contact OSBI. You can submit a form. It costs $15 to send it in, and then they will get back to you with what your background check shows.
And you’ll want to do that before you request your expungement and then, if you’re worried to make sure that it’s gone through the system, you can check it afterward and it should be removed from that.
They charge $150 to update that, so they better get it done. But if you’re concerned about whether it’s done, getting to apply for a job, new housing, and you’re afraid they’re going to do a background check, you want to see what they see, you can pull that background check on your own to see whether that’s done or not.
So hopefully that answers your question regarding how do I check the status of my expungement. If you have additional questions or you’ve got specifics related to your own circumstances, somebody else’s circumstances, going through an expungement, you’re probably going to want to talk to somebody privately, confidentially about that, not just take the general information here, but get a consult scheduled to do that and go online to makelaweasy.com.
