When you apply for a job, professional license, apartment, or other important life opportunities, it is likely that you will be subject to a background check. If you have arrests, criminal charges, or criminal convictions, they will show up on your record as part of the background check, and you might lose the opportunity.
Many people struggling with an arrest or criminal record would experience many benefits if that record was destroyed or sealed. This is why you should always look into the possibility of obtaining an expunction or a non-disclosure of your criminal record. The Gilbert G. Garcia Law Firm helps clients identify whether they qualify for relief from a criminal record, and Gilbert G. Garcia can handle every step of the process for you.
An expunction effectively destroys a record. This is only available if you were not convicted of a crime, if you were arrested but never charged, or charged and your charge was dismissed, if you successfully completed a Pre-trial Diversion Contract or you were acquitted or received a pardon.
If you do not qualify for an expunction, you might still be able to have them sealed. This can happen for you as a result of a non-disclosure order. Non-disclosure is available to you if you were either convicted of certain relatively minor crimes and received specified punishment, or if your charges were dismissed after completing conditions set during deferred adjudication.
Expunction and non-disclosure have many benefits, but also strict standards and procedures. You want The Gilbert G. Garcia Law Firm on your side if you wish to seek such legal relief from your criminal record.
