In order to pursue an expungement for a misdemeanor conviction in Montana:
- You need to have completed the entire misdemeanor sentence– including fines, any conditions of sentencing, etc.
- 5 years must have passed since you completed all terms of your sentence. The more time that has passed, the more likely your Montana expungement will be successful.
- You can’t have been charged with any new offenses since completing your sentence.
- You must file a petition in District Court which has very specific legal requirements. To do this right you NEED the help of an experienced Montana expungement lawyer.
- If your crime harmed a victim, the victim will be contacted and asked for his or her input.

When your expungement is successful, your case will be dismissed. In addition, all legal records relating to your misdemeanor, including court records will be destroyed.

Can a DUI Be Expunged?
Yes, but they will be looked at very closely by the courts and are more challenging. The court will look at:
- The amount of time that has passed since your offense, conviction, and sentencing. Remember the 5-year minimum is just that- a minimum.
- How likely you are to reoffend. The more you can show you’ve turned your life around, the more likely your expungement will be granted.
