Elizabethtown Expungement Lawyer
An expungement can be thought of as a legal process for covering up the stains of your criminal record. Instead of permanently removing infractions, your past warrants, complaints, arrest reports, commitments and criminal history records will be sealed. Although your criminal record won’t be erased, your past mistakes will no longer show up on a background check.
Walk Into A Job Interview With Confidence And A Clean Record
Even if you were never convicted of a crime, there is still going to be an arrest record out there that can come back to haunt you as you advance in your career or education. At Dowan Law Offices, we can review your history and determine if you are eligible for an expungement.
Some factors we will need to consider, include:
- The amount of time that has passed since your conviction or the fulfillment of your sentence
- Whether you were a first-time offender
- The type of infraction, such as drug crimes, alcohol offenses or driving offenses
- Whether you were convicted of a felony or misdemeanor (there are some exceptions, but most felonies are not eligible for expungement in Kentucky – if your felony was amended to a misdemeanor or you were never convicted, you may be eligible)
For servicemen and women stationed at Fort Knox, an arrest or criminal conviction may act as a roadblock to advancement.
