The New Hope Act, passed by the state legislature in mid-2019, expanded the list of felonies and misdemeanors eligible for vacation.

Learn what’s eligible and how to quickly and effectively navigate the process. The Clean Slate Act, a follow-up bill to create a pilot exploring automatic vacation of some of these records, was vetoed this year due to budget constraints. The WSBA activity ID number is 1142269.
