Do you want to "erase" your criminal record?
Expungement is a process used to "erase" criminal records. Recently, Alabama passed an expungement law that may permit you to "erase" certain criminal non-convictions.
Why is expungement necessary?
A criminal record can haunt you for the rest of your life by affecting your personal and professional relationships. In most cases, criminal records are public records, and they will remain in the public record until you take further action to remove them. This can have a devastating effect on you when an employer, landlord, educational institution, or financial institution searches for your criminal records.
Furthermore, employers regularly ask about an applicant's criminal history during the hiring process. On many occasions, a highly qualified job applicant's criminal past stands in the way of employment, and the applicant is not hired. Thus, it has become increasingly necessary to expunge criminal records in order to obtain employment.
