What is Expungmenet
Expungement in Sacramento is a process that allows people to clean up their criminal records so that employers can no longer use that information against them in a job application.
In today’s competitive economy, applicants need to do everything possible to increase their odds at getting a job. Unfortunately, even a minor offense such as a DUI, shoplifting or drug possession conviction from many years ago can prevent people from getting the job they seek. Criminal records can also be a problem when people are applying for professional licenses and can also affect applications for citizenship. Whatever the motivation for cleaning up your record, expungements are a great way to give yourself a fresh start.
