The new expungement filing fees are an abomination. $250.00 per petition. And they apply to both arrests and convictions. So if you're found not guilty at trial or the cops arrest you because you have a similar name to the real suspect and you want to expunge that dismissal or false arrest, it'll cost you $250.00. If you don't have it, that's just too bad. Most counties, including Multnomah, have decided that the fee is not waivable. Ugh.
