Expungement Lawyer in Camarillo
Information about Record Clearance Methods
A person who has been arrested or convicted for a crime at some point in the past has the option of pursuing what is known as record clearance, or expungement. An expungement is a legal process that literally clears one's criminal record of a specific arrest or conviction, and it can be applied to a litany of offenses, including felonies and misdemeanors. In addition to expungement, there is what is known as a Certificate of Rehabilitation. This is an order issued by the court that officially states that a person convicted of a felony has been fully rehabilitated. These certificates are especially applicable in cases involving a sex crime, as they allow one to cease registering as a sex offender.
Both record clearance/expungement and Certificates of Rehabilitation have the purpose of giving one a fresh start in life. Possessing a criminal record can severely inhibit one's opportunities, in regards to home or vehicle purchases, employment options, and the ability to engage in secondary education. Eradicating prior records of illegal activity opens up one's opportunities, allowing one to pursue a happy and successful life. If you are seeking record clearance or a Certificate of Rehabilitation, contact a Camarillo DUI attorney who can assist you in the filing process.
