What is Expungement? Once a person pays their debt to society through fines, jail time, or successfully completing probation, it is time to clean up their criminal record.
Are you looking for jobs in Orange County? Or jobs in Los Angeles County? Southern California? We hear people say all the time: “I need a job.”
A criminal record can prevent you from finding the jobs you so desperately need. Some types of government assistance may not be available. It can affect your ability to obtain a professional license. In other words, your criminal record can destroy your future.
Fortunately, we have a solution. You need to clean up your criminal record. There is a process called “Expungement” which allows your attorney to go back to Court and ask the Judge to dismiss your case. A person who has successfully completed probation can have the accusations against him dismissed and will be released from all penalties and disabilities resulting from the offense.
This means that once the case is dismissed, you can truthfully say that you have not been convicted of that crime. Think of how much this would help you in finding jobs. There are some exceptions, but the benefit of obtaining this relief to clean up your criminal record far outweighs the exceptions.
Certain felony convictions can be reduced to a misdemeanor and then expunged. Other methods to clean up a criminal record include obtaining a certificate of rehabilitation and pardon.
