If you have been convicted of a crime, you may want to have your record expunged. The legal term for that process is called a Motion and Order setting aside the Judgment. To determine if you are eligible for expungement and attorney will need to know when and where you were convicted and the type of crime or crimes you were convicted of in order to move forward. The type and number of convictions determines whether you are eligible for expungement and when you are eligible. For example, if you have been convicted of just one misdemeanor crime you are likely eligible after three years from the date you were convicted. If you were convicted of two misdemeanors at the same time it will take ten years to be eligible.
Many felonies are also eligible for expungement. We have helped many people clean up their record so that it better reflects the person they are today as opposed to the person who was convicted in the past. If you have questions about your eligibility call Jarvis, Bridge, Halttunen, & Weyer today to schedule a consultation.
