PA Board of Pardons Merit Reviews — December 2022 Answers and Updates

There were many PA Board of Pardons updates in its recent regular meeting. One of the most significant changes we anticipate is the ability to File Your Own Pardon Online. This substantial technological advancement aims to simplify the pardon-filing process.

Although this development will eliminate the need for paper documentation, understanding how traditional merit reviews and public hearings work will be essential knowledge when you clear a criminal record online. Here’s a closer look at what we know so far.

Recent PA Merit Review Session

The Board of Pardons wanted to launch its website for this new process on January 9, 2023, but this has been delayed to later in the first quarter. By then, you can file your pardon application to remove criminal records online. You can either submit pardon applications by yourself or have a representative do it for you.

Representatives can be attorneys, assistants, friends, or pastors. Anyone who helps you, the applicant, fill out expungement petition documents is your representative in this situation.  Special care should be used in the explanation of how and why the crime occurred and why you are a good candidate.
