Misdemeanor Arrest Record Restriction

Due to the Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, the Record Restriction Event scheduled for April 4, 2020 at Goodwill has been cancelled. Although the event has been cancelled, the Solicitor-General’s Office will still process and review all applications and restrict all eligible charges. If you submitted an application, a representative of the Solicitor-General’s Office will contact you by phone or email within the next three weeks to let you know the results and provide you with additional information.

Formerly known as expungement, arrest record restriction allows certain records in some cases to be only viewed by those inside the judicial branch. Record restriction can be done at any time. For more information, read this blog post on georgia.gov.
