Clear Your Criminal Record
A criminal record can make it extremely difficult to get a job, especially in these times, when the job market is more competitive than ever. It can also impact your ability to rent an apartment or get a home loan. For people who are going to school, it can even be seen by colleges and used as a factor in determining whether or not to allow admission. Thankfully, there is a method available for clearing your criminal record: expungement.
Clear Your Arrest Record
Did you know that even if you were arrested but never charged, or if you were charged but never convicted, that information may be visible to potential employers and other parties? Even if you were never convicted of a crime, expungement can be very beneficial.
How Expungement Works
Essentially, expungement takes an arrest or a conviction off your record. For all intents and purposes, it does not exist and cannot be seen by potential employers and other parties. When you fill out an application that asks whether you have a criminal record, you can honestly answer no to that question.
The specifics of how expungements work vary depending on what you want expunged. At the Joseph A. Fortunato Law Offices, our lawyers are available to review your case. Were you arrested for a disorderly persons offense that was eventually dismissed? Were you convicted of a drug offense? We will determine whether you are eligible for expungement. If you are, we will handle all aspects of the process to clear your criminal record.
