Those who have been convicted of a crime may soon realize that they will continue to be haunted by their crime long after they’ve served their time. It can be extremely limiting to find a place to live or a stable job when you have a criminal record, even if you are devoted to getting your life back on track and building a better future for yourself. That’s why it’s possible for some people to seek an order of expungement so that they can have their criminal record wiped clean. Dean Law Group P.C. can help you to determine whether you are eligible to pursue an expungement, and if so, we’ll assist you with each step of the process. Ultimately, it’s our goal to ensure that you have the best possible chances of enjoying a hopeful future.
It’s important to recognize that not all crimes are eligible for expungement. Certain offenses, such as DUI crimes, most sex crimes, and Class and Class B felonies are not likely to be wiped clean from your criminal record. However, for most other offenses, you may pursue an order of expungement, as long as you meet certain other requirements. For instance, you cannot be under prosecution for another crime at the time you request an expungement, and you must have not been convicted of a criminal offense for at least 10 years before requesting the expungement. If you are curious about the specific criteria for pursuing an expungement, reach out to Dean Law Group P.C. today.
