Don't Let Your Past Limit Your Future

California Certificate of Rehabilitation

Unfortunately not all convictions can be expunged in California. The most common thing that prevents our clients from getting an expungement is state prison. Unfortunately, if you were sentenced to a year or more in state prison, California law will not let you expunge the crime you did time for. Don’t worry though, we have services besides expungements to clear up your criminal record.

California law allows us to petition the court for a “Certificate of Rehabilitation”. A Certificate of Rehabilitation is valuable because its an official endorsement from the courts that states that your past is your past. Your criminal history is behind you and you’re a positive member of society. This will usually make things like getting a job, leasing an apartment or qualifying for a loan much easier.

Some of the benefits of a Certificate of Rehabilitation include:

A) Sends a positive official message to potential employers/landlords/friends/family that you’ve taken the necessary steps to leave your past where it belongs – in your past!

B) And you should be now viewed as a productive and contributing member of society.

C) Also, an automatic application for a pardon from the California governor will be created upon your completion of the Rehabilitation program.

Convincing a court to grant you a Certificate of Rehabilitation is typically tricky and at times very difficult, so contact us for a free consultation with one of our experienced attorneys. From start to finish the process usually takes seven to ten months, so starting the process before you need a Certificate of Rehabilitation.
