Expungement In Northeast Ohio: You May Qualify For Cleaning Up Your Record

If, in the past, you have been charged for a crime, or arrested or convicted of a criminal offense, then you may have a criminal record that can and will cause many negative impacts in your life for years to come. Possible negative impacts include:

–  Loss of a job
–  Difficulty finding new employment
–  Difficulty in trying to obtain a home or auto loan
–  Difficulty applying for college or other continuing education
–  Difficulty finding a place to live

In short, the effects of a criminal record can haunt you in virtually all aspects of your life.
Fortunately, there is a remedy for the lasting hardship caused by a criminal record. In Ohio, we have a process that is known as expungement. In essence, expungement is the sealing of a prior criminal record.  It can be used for most misdemeanor offenses, and even for many felony offenses. Furthermore, once the offense has been expunged, you will be able to legally state that you have never been involved with the crime in question, even in employment and other applications. In short, it will be as if it never happened.

The laws pertaining to what offenses can and cannot be expunged, and when they can be expunged are highly complex. If you have a criminal record, you should immediately reach out to an experienced attorney who can guide you through the process of expungement.
