About 77 million people in the US have a criminal record of some kind; these records have created unnecessary barriers in accessing voting, housing, education, employment and more.
Have you had a background check on your criminal history, even if it was just an arrest, and this made it difficult for you to land a job or apartment? An expungement can help you! An expungement removes arrest and non-conviction charges from your criminal record in the state databases. This means your record can no longer be seen by the general public.
