The impact of a criminal conviction lasts long after you pay your fine, serve your sentence, or otherwise pay your debt to society. If you have a criminal record it is more difficult to find a job, rent an apartment, secure a loan, possess a firearm, or even volunteer at your child’s school. Today it is common for organizations to run background checks in making decisions about you.
If you are not eligible for an Expungement, our attorneys can guide you through the pardon process.
Pardons – If you do not meet the Expungement or Sealing qualifications, but you still want to clear your Pennsylvania criminal history, you may be able to seek a pardon. The rules governing Pardons are not as clearly defined as those for expungement. You may be a good candidate for a pardon if your conviction is older, and if you have made major life improvements. The Pardon process has many steps that we can walk you through.
Contact us today to discuss your circumstances, and to determine whether you should pursue a pardon. All Pennsylvania pardons are filed with the Board of Pardons Office in Harrisburg, PA. We can help you file a pardon even if you do not live in York County.
Do not let an older conviction keep you from obtaining the job you want today. If you want to seek a Pardon, legal help is available.
