Louisville Expungement Attorney
An expungement is the legal process to formally erase certain charges from your criminal record. You typically should hire an expungement lawyer to make sure it’s done properly. Even if you’ve paid the fine, served time or completed probation, these charges remain on your record. This means they can be found by potential employers during background checks, or must be listed on applications.
According to the new Kentucky law, once the charge has been expunged, it’s as if it never existed. This is terrific news for thousands of people in Louisville and the 120 counties of Kentucky.
The new law specifically names over 60 Class D felonies, which are now eligible.
In addition, you can how expunge multiple misdemeanors.
Mistakes from your past may have prevented you from moving on with your life. Listing felony charges on your job application created a red flag for employers. Having a series of misdemeanor charges could limit your options as well. It’s not uncommon for new business owners, or a company which just acquired yours to run background checks on current employees. Without an expungement, your employer is going to see everything.
Many people are unaware that simply being charged with a crime, even if you were found innocent, means the charge still remains on your criminal record.
