Why is an expungement important?
A criminal record can prevent you from getting a good job, obtaining credit, voting, obtaining certain professional licenses, affect your ability to become a United States citizen, and obtaining other social benefits. Expungements and clearning your criminal record dismisses your prior criminal convictions from the public record. This makes a person eligible for employment, the ability to run for political office, and apply for and obtain credit. You will not have to walk around as a “criminal” and will not have to worry about applying for that next job!
