Do I Need an Expungement?

Do I Need an Expungement?

Anyone with an Internet connection can see your criminal record. Potential employers, landlords, and licensing organizations are just a few of the entities that inquire about an individual’s criminal record.

Whether they obtain a formal background check or merely check the state’s online case history portal, your criminal record is available for all to see. Many people are surprised to learn how much of one’s life can be impacted by past mistakes:

The presence of criminal convictions upon your record can impact your life in countless ways, including, but not limited to the following areas:

  • Job opportunities
  • Housing opportunities
  • Driving privileges
  • Child custody matters
  • Professional licensure
  • Voting rights
  • Your right to own and carry a gun.

By obtaining an expungement, you can prevent inquiring agents from accessing and using your criminal record to prevent your success in these areas.
