How long does it take to seal an arrest?

It may take several months for a record to be expunged.  It is a two phase process.  The first step is to submit an expungement application (receive from GJP) with the needed documents along with a $25 fee to the arresting agency .  It can take several months for an application to be approved or denied.  If the application is approved the application is submitted to the Georgia Crime Information Center with another $25 fee and the arrest will be sealed in approximately 6 weeks.
