How much does it cost to have a charge expunged?
Fees are determined by South Carolina law. In general, conviction fees are $250 to the Solicitor’s Office, $25 to SLED and $35 to the Clerk of Court. However, fees are not due at the time of application. If your charge(s) is eligible for expungement, you will be notified of any fees necessary to process your request. All fees must be in the form of a money order or certified cashier’s check and are non-refundable. Fees are subject to change at any time.
