If you have been convicted of a felony or misdemeanor crime, it will be documented on your criminal record, which can be reviewed by various people when a background check is run. For many individuals, a background check showing a previous conviction has been the only thing holding them back from certain prospects, including acquiring decent housing, employment, and credit. At the Law Offices of Lawrence Wolf, our Los Angeles criminal record expungement lawyers want to help you clear your criminal record so that you can get on with your life.
An expungement is a legal procedure in which a conviction is cleared from a criminal record. This does not mean that the conviction is removed entirely; rather it means that the conviction will no longer be able to be viewed by the public. After an expungement has been successfully completed, the individual may legally say that he or she has not been arrested for or convicted of the expunged crime. This will give a person the fresh start that they need to pursue their goals, without having the stigma of a criminal conviction.
The assistance and guidance of an experienced Los Angeles expungement lawyer is necessary when going through the complex process of having a crime cleared from one’s criminal record. To begin the process of expunging your conviction, it must be decided if you are eligible to have your conviction cleared, which requires investigation into your particular situation. Many factors are taken into account, such as the crime committed, the date of your conviction, probation issues, unpaid monetary fines, and whether or not you are currently involved in a criminal case or under investigation for a crime.
Unfortunately, not all convictions can be cleared from a person’s criminal record; although many misdemeanors and some felonies can be expunged. It will be extremely beneficial to have the representation of a California criminal attorney who understands the process of successfully clearing a criminal record, as it is a complicated and time consuming procedure.
