on my background check it shows guilty. was not sure if there is a time limit on domestic charges. never knew walking into someone while trying to leave an arguement would cause so much aggrevation

That would best be asked of a lawyer in KY. He will know or can find out better than anyone here

A quick peak at Kentucky law for expungement looks good for you; if 5 years have passed, no other convictions, it was a misdeameanor. You need to start shopping around for an attorney. Likewise, I'd assume the filing would have to be in the county in which you were convicted. BTW, as it stands under Federal law, which I assume state law follows you cannot be in possession of any firearm and even ammunition until you take care of it.

Under Kentucky law the offenses below are not expungeable. You are going to need an attorney regardless, so shop around and start saving or be prepared to hire an attorney outright..

A sex offense;
A crime committed against a child;
The person has no history of felony convictions;
The person has not been convicted of a misdemeanor violation in the last five years;
The person is not pending a felony or other type of conviction;
The offense the person committed was against the Commonwealth of Kentucky.

Expungments are sometimes tricky things, with different legal concepts underlying them. You need a Kentucky lawyer, no kidding. It probably will be expensive, but that's an area that you just can't handle trying to do it yourself, for reasons too numerous and complicated to explain here.
