Records of valid felony convictions are permanent and cannot be expunged except by order of the governor of the state (or the President if a federal felony) or in some circumstances at the appellate level due to a wrongful conviction.

Expungement procedures and requirements vary from state to state and you will have to look at your state statutes for the particular procedures to follow in your state, or to even know if you are eligible to have the dismissed charges expunged. In Florida, for example, there are certain arrests that cannot be expunged, even though the charges were ultimately dismissed. When your record is expunged, it is physically destroyed, and the public will no longer have access to it. Although in many states, one copy is retained by the state's central law enforcement agency and there are situations in which you would still have to reveal you've had a record expunged.
