How can I get a charge expunged off my record?

Virginia law only allows for you to have a charge expunged if you meet certain criteria.  You must either have been found not guilty on your charge or if your charge was nolle prosequi or dismissed some other way that would qualify.  You cannot get your charge expunged if you have done a first offender agreement for dismissal or if you have been found guilty of the offense.  If your situation does not fall under these criteria then you are most likely not eligible for expungment.  You should consult an attorney at Taylor Law Company who can review your circumstances and provide an explanation on whether you qualify for the expungement process.
