Helping you take the next step in starting over

Ready to begin?

The Clear My Record (CMR) Expungement Project at UMKC School of Law originated in 2017 to meet the unmet need for legal assistance for individuals seeking expungement. Currently, the Expungement Clinic at the law school is advising low-income expungement-seekers with Missouri convictions about their eligibility and beginning to represent some applicants in court.

If you would like to determine your eligibility and seek assistance, you can begin by filling out this intake form. It asks you for the key information the state of Missouri requires on their application for expungement.

While our services are free, you may still be required to pay the court a filing fee and an additional surcharge of $250 to clear a conviction. If you have little or no money and cannot pay these costs, you may ask the court to waive the costs in an affidavit and motion.

Due to a large number of people we are trying to help, it may take a while before you hear back from us. Rest assured, we will keep you updated as we process your request. You are also welcome to reach out to us directly if you have questions, or would like an update. You can call the CMR Clinic at 816-235-1671 or email us at
