Q. How long do I have to wait to have a domestic violence charge expunged in Kentucky?
A: Depends.

Were you charged in criminal court? Or was this a domestic violence order entered in family court?

If you were charged in criminal court, assuming the charge was not one labeled as a violent crime or an assault 1 or 2, you're looking at 5 years from the date of your conviction/pea/end of probationary period before you are eligible for expungement.

If this was a domestic violence order issued in family court, and it wasn't dismissed by the petitioner, you will not be eligible for expungement for that DVO at all.

If the domestic violence order was never issued (the EPO was not converted to a DVO) and the proceedings were dismissed, that can be expunged 60 day after the proceedings were dismissed. ... Read More
Q. If I got pulled over without having a license , and I've never had one before and the cop never gave me a ticket ,
A: That's a big fat NO. IF the officer did not give you a ticket with a court date, and informed you that "this was just a warning" - you should not have to appear in court. Be mindful, though, that IF he did provide you with a ticket, most of the time (if not all of the time, and depending on the nature of the infraction) the ticket may list a pre-payable price at the bottom, as well as a court date if you do not wish to pay the ticket and wish to contest it.
Q. Is there anything I can do about charges my son received due to neglect of the jail?
A: I’m afraid there is likely no remedy here.
