Why Would Someone Want an Expungement?
Expungements are valuable. They all will remove the convictions from official state performed background checks. They all allow for you to deny that you have been convicted of a crime on job applications. They could even be used as defenses to later offenses.
We all know that employers perform background checks. The job market today is employer friendly environment. Many employers will disregard all the candidates with convictions. Sometimes even a speeding conviction could make your application less desirable than one without.
Frequently, landlords and mortgage officers run background checks. Even with a good job and decent credit, an old conviction can keep you from owning a home of your own or lead to a higher interest rate.
An expungement can restore the rights you lose. A felony conviction takes away your right to vote, hold public office, serve on a jury, and have a firearm. A felony expungement may restore those rights.
Some misdemeanor drug offenses can prevent you from receiving student loans. Voiding and sealing those convictions could get you back in school.
Many professional boards will not grant you a license if you have a conviction. It’s not just professions like attorney, accountant, and doctor. Arizona has statutes that make it difficult for people with a record to get licensed for anything. There are laws prohibiting real estate brokers, nurses, teachers and others from getting licensed.
Expungement can give you a second chance on life. Anyone with an old marijuana conviction can benefit from expungement. Finally many of our clients just want the peace of mind of knowing their record is clear.
No matter why you want a clean record, we can help.
