Erasing A Permanent Mark
One of the most damaging results of a criminal conviction or arrest is the mark on your permanent record. This can limit your job opportunities, your ability to get housing or your immigration status in the United States.
In certain cases, the arrest and conviction can be expunged, or removed, from your record. This means the case will no longer appear on background checks, like it never happened.
If your case is NOT eligible for expunction, you could possibly obtain a Notice of Nondisclosure. While a Notice of Nondisclosure does not completely erase a past arrest or conviction from your record, it can prevent private companies or other private entities from being able to see it on a background check.
