Can a Protective Order Be Expunged In Indiana?
Records regarding protective order proceedings under Indiana Code chapter 34-26-5 are eligible for expungement in the same way an arrest, charge, or conviction can be expunged.
As long as you are otherwise eligible to have your records expunged, you can petition to have the protective order records expunged if any of the following apply:
- The protective order petition was dismissed without a hearing
- The protective order petition was denied after a hearing
- The person seeking the protective order did not appear for the hearing
- The protective order was vacated or reversed on appeal
Having a protective order proceedings on your records can impair many rights and privileges, so be sure to include any protective order records in a petition for expungement.
