Petitions for Expunction are filed and processed by the Clerk's office. Not all charges in North Carolina are eligible for expunction. Expunction requests vary based on the charge, type of disposition, and the defendants age. Some requests require additional affidavits and documentation.
Fees for expunctions range from no filing fee at all to $175. While the Clerk's office can provide you with the petition they are not able to advise you on how to complete it.
Petitions may be picked up on the 1st floor, Room 110, of the Buncombe County Courthouse or by accessing the North Carolina Administrative Office of the Courts website.
