– Criminal Record Expungement

Don’t live with a dark cloud over your head, start with a clean slate.

Struggling to find work? Unable to travel or emigrate? Many upstanding and highly regarded South Africans find themselves in a similar predicament due to a conviction for some or other petty offence committed during their early adult years.

Our criminal record expungement service simplifies the journey to a record-free life. If it’s been 10 years or more since your minor crime conviction, give us a call today.

What does Expungement mean?

Expungement of a criminal record is a process by which a criminal record of a convicted offender is expunged from the criminal record database at the Criminal Record Centre of the South African Police Service.

This allows a person to carry on with life without a criminal record being an obstruction to employment opportunities.

With years of experience, a fast and effective service we offer clients the opportunity to remove minor, non-malicious offences from an individual’s criminal record permanently and quickly, through a fully legal process supported by both the Department of Home Affairs and the Department of Justice.

Our expertise will optimize your chances at a successful expungement process.

At GDMSs we guarantee:

  • A turn-around time of between 6-8 weeks, compared to 4 months if you do it yourself at SAPS
  • Everything we do gets done via email and courier no need to visit the office.

The South African expungement process is a complex legal process. It is not only essential that the appropriate documents are filed properly, but that the many legal intricacies are thoroughly addressed in the appropriate manner, otherwise it is highly likely that your expungement application will be denied by the Department of Justice.

Simply provide us with information detailing the offence you want expunged, as well as your personal identity information, and we will submit an expungement request to the Administrator of Criminal Records and SAPS. Within a few days, and after an identity verification process, the offence is removed from a person’s permanent criminal record.

All applications for expungement of criminal records in terms of the Criminal Procedure Act, 1977, are to be submitted to the Director General: Department of Justice and Constitutional Development as prescribed in Part I of the relevant application form.
