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.
