Expungement Lawyer in Colorado Springs, CO
Expungement of a Criminal Record
A criminal record is a burden in your life. You go to apply for a job and you are asked about whether you have ever been arrested. You have to answer yes or chance being exposed for a fraudulent job application. You answer yes and you never hear from the employer again. A criminal record can be a barrier to not only jobs but college applications, scholarships and loan applications.
If you are having this difficulty you may apply for expungement of your criminal record. Expungement of records means that they are sealed and may not be disclosed to the public. The data is also barred to government officials unless they seek it by court order. Once expunged, you may then lawfully deny on job, scholarship or loan application that the incident ever occurred. To seek expungement of your criminal record, you are urged to contact a Colorado Springs criminal lawyer.
