In 2021, Delaware became the fifth state to pass laws that meet Clean Slate criteria: automation of record clearance, automated clearance upon eligibility of the record, inclusion of arrest records, inclusion of misdemeanor records, and a strong recommendation for laws to include eligibility of at least one felony record. These laws provide greater equity, consistency, and cost-effectiveness through a streamlined automated process that applies to all Delaware records eligible for mandatory expungement.
For people living with a record in Delaware, Clean Slate's implementation can’t come soon enough. With Delaware’s Clean Slate Law set to begin in August 2024, we're here to make sure you receive consolidated, accessible, and accurate information about the automated expungement process and ensure implementation is smooth for those who need that relief as soon as possible.
