Cleaning Up My Criminal Record

Are you like a lot of people who are wondering, “How can I clean up my criminal record so I can get the job I want and move on with my life?” If so, chances are you have probably learned from your mistakes and you are ready to wipe the slate clean. Depending on what your criminal offenses are, you may be able to clean up your record a bit so that it is easier to get a job and so you can actually pass a criminal background check that is often run so you can get a job or even volunteer with a charitable organization. Criminal record checks are becoming more and more common in many different areas of life, so if possible you will want to clean up your record.

You may be able to do what is known as expunging your record. Of course, this can only be done if you were charged with a non-violent crime and many areas will not allow for felonies to be taken off of your record. What this means is that you may be able to persuade the court to expunge your record, or remove those offenses for which you have paid your dues or significant amount of time has passed since you have had an offense, or at least a similar offense. You usually need the help of an attorney to file the appropriate papers to get your criminal record cleaned up, though this may vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction so you should be sure to check with local policies in your area.

You will need to check with the courts in your area to see how soon you are able to clean up your criminal record. Some offenses may be able to be expunged within a year while others may need to wait for two, three, or even five years. Remember, most courts will not remove felony offenses or violent crimes from a criminal record.
