PA Pardon Process
The PA pardon process is somewhat straightforward, but a considerable amount of work and time must be invested for it to have a chance at being successful. If you don't file the paperwork correctly, things can take even longer, but luckily, you are not alone when you work with us.
A Pardon can be filed asking for forgiveness or removal of a misdemeanor and criminal conviction. This is the only procedure that completely removes a misdemeanor or felony conviction in Pennsylvania. How do you get a pardon?
1. Complete Your Application:

- How Long Does the Pardon Process Take in Pennsylvania?
The Research, documentation, and filing of the application can take a month or two. Once filed, the Board will take a year or two to investigate, research and process the application. A marijuana or paraphernalia case will be reviewed in a year or less on an Expedited Basis.
- How Much Time Does a Person Have To Wait To Apply For a Pardon?
Two years +/- 6 months is about how long it takes for the final vote by the Board. The Governor will then take a few months to review and sign the Pardon if he sees fit. Any Pardon is best followed up by filing an Expungement Petition, which can also take a few months.
3 – 4 years is a reasonable estimate.
- Is My PA Pardon Application Public Record?
While the Board says that they will publish someone seeking a Pardon in a Newspaper in the local community, we have never seen this publication, nor have we heard from a client who saw it either.
- Do I Need To Disclose My Pardon In a Job Application/Interview?
If the Pardon is received and the record expunged, no. If the Pardon is filed but not yet granted, the conviction record still exists and should be acknowledged.
