  3. Wait for the judge to review your application and make a decision about it.

The most challenging step in expunging your case is obtaining the required documents in the application. You can get some of these documents from the prosecutor's office or court records.

What Else Can You Do If You Cannot Remove a Court Order Online by Yourself?

If you cannot have your court order expunged, you're left with the following options

1. Sue the Court Record Website

You can choose to sue the court record website, but this has a little success rate. There are few laws requiring third-party websites to remove information online. Therefore, you may have difficulty trying to get enough grounds to sue the court record website.

2. Work with a Reputation Management Agency

A reputation management agency can offer to pay off the court record website to pull down your court order online. However, the lack of a law they can use against the court makes this process futile.

3. Request the Court to Pull Down the Court Order

You may request the court to remove your court order online using the following means:

  • Letter
  • Email
  • Telephone call

However, there's no legal mandate that can force the court to do away with information they've posted online. So, by using this method, they may be less inclined to comply with your request.

4. Use SEO Strategies to Suppress Google Searches

This seems to be a long shot but can have minimal positive results. However, it requires expert inputs and may take more time than expected to be effective. It also depends on variables such as Google's SEO algorithms, keyword competition, and search volumes to be effective.
