Preventing a Poor First Impression
Expungement can prevent issues with employment, housing, and other issues. While there are many benefits in expungement, there are some notable limitations of expungement.
Some of the advantages of expungement include the ability to seal and even destroy incriminating records. In order to do so, the court must approve the motion. The court will usually only do so if it meets certain requirements. These requirements include determining whether the offense is a one-off, the age of the individual at the time of the offense, and a number of other factors. The process of expungement can remove a criminal conviction from rental applications, job filings, or any other process that requires a background check.
There are some limitations on expungement. In general, government agencies will be able to access any expunged records that are required. Additionally, if an individual with an expunged record attempts to apply for a position that deals with sensitive client information, they may be required to disclose that they have had an expungement.
