Job Opportunity through Record Expungement
With the assistance of an experienced expungement attorney, you can clear, or expunge your criminal record of most felony and misdemeanor convictions. Once expunged, you can legally declare that you have never been convicted of a felony or misdemeanor when seeking a job or other employment.
Successful criminal record cleanup through expungement in California allows for the confident exploration of all job opportunities, without the anxiety of a prior criminal conviction eliminating you as a potential candidate.
Expungement in California
California is one of the few states that allows individuals an opportunity to gain a fresh start in their work and personal life, by allowing most felony and misdemeanor convictions to be completely cleared of your criminal record.
Upon an Order from the Court, once expunged the conviction will set aside, and your criminal record will be permanently changed to reflect a dismissal rather than a conviction. Once your conviction has been expunged, you can LEGALLY state you have never been convicted of a felony or misdemeanor.
Upon completion of a successful record cleanup, the California court will update their records in approximately 48 hours and the file itself will be updated with the Dept. of justice within 30 days.
- You are not presently serving sentence for another conviction
