Some seek an expungement for better employment, housing and financial opportunities. Many experience a great sense of relief in knowing their criminal records are finally clean, and have the peace of mind in knowing that they can truthfully and legally answer “no” when asked whether they have a criminal record.
WHAT IS EXPUNGEMENT?
Expungement is a legal process by which a conviction or plea of either Guilty or No Contest in a criminal case is set aside and the case is dismissed. It relieves the defendant of certain penalties and disabilities that result from a criminal action, such as having to divulge your criminal record on employment applications or in other similar situations.
