Record Restriction in Georgia

When you go to apply for a job or try to get a new driving license, you may run into trouble if you have a past arrest on your record. The Georgia court system allows you to apply for a record restriction, a process that keeps anyone outside of the criminal justice system so that they don’t stop you from living a full life. To get your record restricted, you have to apply to the court. You will only be considered if you meet certain requirements. You may qualify if your charge:
  • Never got referred to the prosecuting attorney for prosecution.
  • If your charges were dismissed without seeking an indictment or filing an accusation.
  • It was your first offense.
  • You had a conditional discharge conviction not previously restricted.
  • You have a conviction for certain misdemeanor offenses, not felonies.

You can’t apply for any restrictions if you have current outstanding criminal charges or if you have any new convictions on your record that occurred after the one you want to be restricted.
