Can I get a domestic violence conviction expunged?

My ex wife and I got into an argument almost a decade ago and she called the police on me. I was charged but I have zero other charges on my record. I've never stolen anything or committed any other crimes. I was talking with my current wife about expungement but I wasn't sure if it is possible.

    In Michigan anything over 5 years old, if the only conviction, can be expunged. You have to petition the court where it happened and then it is up to the judge.
