When you have a criminal record, it can be frustrating when employers turn you away or your rental application has been rejected. Many convicted individuals often find it difficult to reintegrate into society even after they have served their sentences and paid their dues.
At the Law Offices of Christopher Martens, we can help you find a fresh start through expungement. Expungement allows certain individuals the opportunity to dismiss your records, essentially making them inaccessible to most of the public. Once completed, you can lawfully state that you have not been convicted of a crime. There are exceptions, as certain government jobs can still view these records. We can discuss your options, the limitations, and explore whether you qualify for expungement.
Only certain misdemeanors and felonies can be expunged. Examples include some theft, drug possession, DUI, and domestic violence charges. An attorney can discuss whether you are eligible.
Requirements for expungement:
Certain crimes do not qualify for expungement, such as:
While some convictions can’t be dismissed, they can be reduced from a felony to a misdemeanor, depending on the conviction.
