Pennsylvania - Disputing Public Records
Obtaining an Official Record
The Pennsylvania State Police manage criminal records.
To get a record expunged, you will need to file a petition in the county where the offense occurred. File with the Court of Common Pleas in that county.
Civil records generally include judgments, liens and evictions, as well as other family and small claims cases.
The most efficient way to dispute a civil record in Pennsylvania is to contact the court in which the record was filed.
Bankruptcies can stay on your credit record for as long as 10 years. The most important place these records can affect you is on your credit report. To dispute a bankruptcy record that is inaccurate, contact each of the three major U.S. credit bureaus. Each has a process online for disputing records that appear on your file.
Disputing the actual public record can be much more challenging since the consumer is the one who files for the bankruptcy in the first place. More information can be found on the United States Courts website.
