Expungement is a legal process in which the legal record of an arrest or conviction is erased in the legal community. Essentially the crime no longer has happened.
The process for getting an arrest or conviction expunged can vary in many ways depending on what the crime was and where it may have occurred. In Oakland County, MI expungement can occur with several types of crimes, but not all crimes. Please check with our office to see if your offense may qualify.
An expungement may still be accessible by varying law enforcement facilities, however, almost all private outside agencies will no longer have access to the criminal event. When filling out an application and such you will no longer be required to disclose the event, essentially leaving you crime-free from the event.
It is important to note that expungement is no forgiveness of a crime, only a pardon can offer forgiveness.
Expungement laws vary by jurisdiction and may have different requirements that need to be addressed before an expungement can be granted. Simply contact the office of Neil Rockind in Oakland County, Mi to find out if you have a possible situation that could lead to an Expungement.
One more note: Just having an attorney will not guarantee you will receive an expungement. It does come down to the talent you hire in almost every circumstance.
