Having a criminal record of any kind – whether it’s for a misdemeanor or a felony – can wreak havoc on your life. It could make it more difficult for you to obtain steady employment or obtain employment at all, apply for loans or credit cards, or get a professional license. You may even have trouble getting approved to rent an apartment or a home.
However, in some cases, you can have your criminal record expunged or sealed, so potential employers and others cannot view your criminal history. If you have had your records expunged, you are not required by law to divulge that you were convicted of any crime on employment applications, rental forms, loans or credit card applications.
Depending on how the court ruled during your trial, you may be eligible to have your criminal record expunged immediately following the trial, or after a specified period of time – such as three or five years – depending on the type of crime you were convicted of. Some crimes are not eligible for expungement, including DUI’s or violent crimes.
