An expungement is an important and liberating legal process that involves the clearing of one’s criminal record. If you plead guilty or no contest to an offense, and have a felony or misdemeanor conviction on your record, you may be able to have it expunged, and taken off your criminal record. This may be done after you have completed your sentence and probation, as well as paid any fines that may have been required and finished any necessary rehabilitation.
In most cases, when a conviction is expunged the individual may state that he or she has not been convicted of the particular offense. Many juveniles and adults choose to have their convictions cleared so that they are able to obtain reputable employment and have other freedoms and opportunities that convictions may otherwise prevent.
Not every conviction is able to be expunged from a person’s criminal record, which is why it is vital that you have the advice and guidance of a skilled attorney to assist in this matter. For convictions that can be cleared, there are certain repercussions that may not be able to be avoided. For example if you have had a conviction expunged and are applying for employment with the government your possible employer may learn of your convictions and you may have to admit to having your record cleared. If you wish to have your record cleared, it is important that you hire a skilled Los Angeles expungement lawyer to assist you in the complicated process.
