MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - The Shelby County Criminal Court clerk’s office will begin waiving its expungement fee July 1.

Currently, a $100 fee is required.

A new Tennessee bill authorizes, instead of requires, clerks to charge the fee. The expungement law authorizes persons to petition for expunction for two different types of specified felonies.
