As you determine your eligibility for record relief, please take the time
to review all available information on record relief for the state(s) in
which you have charges. Each person's case is different, and even those
individuals with identical charges may not be eligible for the same relief
when other factors come into play, such as time elapsed and previous
Every state offers some form of relief from the impact of a criminal
record. Each state, however, approaches relief differently. The range of
possible forms of relief includes:
- Total expungement of the record
- Your record may be sealed, limiting access to law enforcement
- An amendment of the criminal record that reflects the individual was
pardoned by the State Governor. This is what's known as an executive
- A certificate stating no criminal charges have been filed against
you for the last several years.
- Additionally, some states have certificates available for good conduct
and relief from disabilities.
- Restoration of Rights, including voting and firearms ownership.
The majority of individuals with a criminal record will be eligible for
some form of relief either now or at some point in the future. Please note
that if you do not appear to be eligible today, you may simply need to allow
enough time to pass since your conviction to meet your state's requirements.
In every case, we will
provide you with the forms necessary to apply for the maximum relief allowed
under state, military and federal laws based on your eligibility.
