For most criminal misdemeanor & gross misdemeanor convictions, the time duration is normally 3 to 5 years after court probation ends and after all financial responsibilities owed to the court have been completely satisfied. And there need to not be any brand-new criminal convictions/ charges/ arrests since the conviction looked for to be vacated.
