Louisville Expungement Attorney
If you have ever been charged with a crime, then you know how difficult it is to find employment. Even if the charges were dismissed, or your time was served, your record can prevent you from being able to volunteer at your children’s school and participate in school functions. A criminal record can place serious limitations on your options.
However, there’s a way to protect your reputation during a background check. It’s called an expugement.
In Kentucky, criminal charges need to be expunged to be properly – and permanently – removed from your record. An expungement helps to ensure past charges don’t effect your future employment or your involvement in your child’s school activities.
Expunging your record effectively erases certain charges from your past. It prevents them from showing up when an employer does a background check on you. Many people don’t realize that even if the charges were dropped, the original charges can remain on your record. It’s a shame to see people continually punished for crimes they didn’t commit. In this economy, it can be devastating.
There are specific guidelines, limits and procedures involved. The Kentucky state legislature considers new bills every year. When the laws are changed, new options may enable you to have your record expunged, wherein the past, you might not have been eligible.
As Louisville criminal defense attorney, I stay up to date on the latest changes and any advances in the Kentucky expungement laws. They are extremely important to my clients.
I can help to get your record expunged, even if I didn’t handle your criminal case.
