Discover Options for Clearing Your Record
Living with a criminal record can be a challenge, especially with the growing ease with which background checks can be conducted. More and more records are searchable online. This is leading to an increase in the number of employers in Philadelphia and beyond who use background checks as part of their hiring process.
A criminal conviction, or even simply an arrest record, can keep you from being offered jobs that you are otherwise qualified for. No one can afford to have a strike against himself or herself that he or she can do something about.
Tools that can help clear a conviction or an arrest off your record include:
- Expungement — An expungement can clear convictions on summary offenses, Accelerated Rehabilitative Dispositions (ARD) and arrests from your record. The process of expungement can take several months from start to finish.
- Pardon — A pardon can clear convictions for more serious crimes from your record. The process of obtaining a pardon is more involved, but it is the only way to remove the stigma of a criminal conviction from your record.
In Pennsylvania, bills are moving through the Legislature that will expand upon the types of crimes that can be expunged. If you have questions regarding whether your record can be expunged, reach out to Attorney John Della Rocca to discuss your case.
