Don't Let Your Past Limit Your Future

Will Employers Look Past Your Criminal Record?

March 25, 2016

It’s always a gamble to apply for a job or housing when you know you have a criminal record. It can cause a bit of uncertainty and uneasiness when facing these issues.  Millions of Americans are currently living with a criminal record, so you are not alone in feeling unsure about your background.

Employers, no matter what the profession, almost always run background checks when accepting new hires. It is more likely than not that your criminal record will be examined, and it could prohibit you from obtaining the job that you are otherwise fully qualified to achieve. There are countless background check websites available for employers to search. A criminal record check can be done fairly inexpensively and also quickly.

One way to fix this is dilemma is to seal or expunge your criminal record.  Either of these legal services would serve as a door-opener to opportunities not otherwise available.  An expungement can be seen as a second chance to move past your criminal record so that you may focus on a future free from the shackles of the criminal justice system.

Whatever your situation, a criminal record expungement can help get you the job, housing, or other civil right to which you should enjoy under the full extent of the law.
