The benefits of expunction

The expungement, or expunction, process can be of great benefit to individuals who have been convicted of a crime, such as DUI charges, and wish to get some of their rights back. The DUI expungement process can help restore some of those rights the accused individual may have lost during the process and help them face the future on a positive footing free from criminal stigma.

A criminal record can have a significant impact on the life of an individual who has been convicted of a crime but may be trying to start over. A criminal record can cause problems for the accused individual related to housing, employment opportunities and educational opportunities. It can also impact gun ownership and voting rights. An expungement may be able to help accused individuals with all of those concerns they are facing.

The expungement process can be lengthy, time-consuming and complex but may also be worth it to determine if the accused individual can enjoy a fresh start. Trained guidance throughout the process, and with the complexities of the process, can also be beneficial. The process of determining if the restoration of the accused individual's record is possible will examine if all of their criminal record is eligible to be expunged or if it may be possible to have only certain crimes expunged. Not all crimes are eligible for the expunction process.

If the expunction is successful, the accused individual's record will be sealed from employers, landlords and banks who will not be able to access the record and deny opportunities or services to the accused individual as a result. The expungement process is worth accused individuals looking into and understanding to determine if it applies to their situation and circumstances and can be of benefit to them.
