Please consider volunteering to serve with Metro Christian Legal Aid at our legal aid clinics or attending one of our events to learn more about doing justice, bringing hope and changing lives in Metro Louisville.
These clinics are an opportunity to meet with an attorney to find out what your rights are and to learn about: recent executive orders, LPR status adjustments, DACA and DACA renewals, refugee adjustments, I-130s and I-730s, asylum and naturalization. Our volunteer attorneys can also refer you to another attorney for further representation if needed.
A criminal record can be an overwhelming obstacle that blocks all your efforts toward a new successful life, even after your debt to society has been fully paid.
Kentucky law provides a way out of this dead end. Qualified individuals with criminal records may be able to "expunge" their record and go forward with a clean slate. However, the legal requirements, the forms and the filings can keep a person from achieving this important step toward a better life.
At each Expungement Clinic, we provide guidance to individuals on how to navigate the expungement process and direct qualified individuals on how to accomplish this goal.
