California State info on expunging your criminal record
Carrying around a criminal record for your entire life can make things exceptionally difficult for you.
Few people who do background checks will ask about the circumstances surrounding the arrest and conviction.
Having a criminal record can make it hard for you to:
- get a job
- rent an apartment
- get a car loan
- buy a house
Living life with a criminal record limits your ability to support yourself and your family.
Some past criminal convictions can be expunged – or “wiped clean” – if certain criteria are met.
Once you have had your record expunged, a prospective employer may not be able to use your history against you when making a hiring decision.
If you were convicted of a felony or a misdemeanor, you may be able to have your record expunged.
However, not all crimes are eligible for expungement. Also, if you served time in a California State prison, the rules for having your record expunged are different.
Having your record wiped clean is greatly helped by the knowledge and expertise of a skilled California defense attorney.
I will petition the court to have your records expunged and provide them with the necessary paperwork and evidence. I will communicate directly with the courts to ensure that all steps are completed properly.
Even if you had trouble while on probation, a strong California defense attorney may be able to convince a judge to grant you the requested relief.
