If you or a loved one has previously been arrested, charged or convicted for a crime, that information can now be found on your criminal record. Whether it was your first offense, or you had been arrested before, and regardless of whether or not a conviction was handed down, you have a criminal record which will follow you around for the rest of your life. Make no mistake that having a criminal record can have an extremely negative impact on many aspects of your life including your credit, your ability to rent or buy a home, your future career opportunities and your reputation. There is something you can about it.
One of the most effective ways to "clear" your criminal record is through a process known as expungement. Expungement is the legal process by which an individual's criminal record is essentially destroyed, thus eliminating all information relating to previous arrests and criminal charges. Once your record has been expunged, you will no longer be required to disclose any information of previous arrests or convictions, except in a few, very specific circumstances. For all intents and purposes, you would have a fresh start.
There are certain qualifications which must be met to have your criminal record expunged. To find out if you quality for expungement, we advise you contact Seaton Law Offices, P.A. as soon as possible in order to speak with one of our skilled criminal defense lawyers.
