Expungement of your Criminal Record By Daniel Smith

In these times of the tough economy it is more important than ever to make sure you have a clean record for prospective employers. If you have a prior misdemeanor or felony conviction that is still on your record, it is possible that you may be over looked for the job you are seeking, expungement may help.

In order to be eligible for an expungement you must have successfully completed probation or had your probation terminated, are not currently charged with a criminal offense, on probation for a criminal offense or serving a sentence for a criminal offense. You must not have been sent to a California State Prison.

If you are eligible for an expungement the process can be completed for you by an attorney. The process includes determination by an experienced attorney whether your case can be expunged, research on the current expungement laws, filing of the proper motions and payment of the proper fees. Once the paperwork is filed your attorney may have to attend a hearing to advocate to a Judge on your behalf why you should be granted an expungement.
