People make mistakes, but those mistakes that lead to criminal charges can have a devastating affect on a person’s future. Even misdemeanors for what are seemingly minor offenses can affect you in a multitude of ways. Criminal convictions often serve as discriminators in a variety of circumstances. They can affect your ability to:
· Obtain housing
· Gain employment
· Qualify for financial aid
· Obtain professional licenses and certifications
· Maintain custody of your children
However, when the court expunges or seals your conviction, it no longer has to be disclosed when submitting applications. It is important that you have strong legal representation to help you understand the process for seeking an expungement or seal.
