Felony Expunge – Could I Get a Passport with Felony Expunge?

Question & AnswerQuestion: My mom was arrested for a supposed felony about seven years ago. The case went on and about 5 years ago, it was thrown out of court for lack of evidence. I think the term use was expunged. Can she travel now and get a US Passport? I would like to take her on a trip. She has been through such a hard time. Can passports be issued if a felony expunge is in place?
