Santa Clarita Expungement Lawyer
Southern California Defense Attorney
In the state of California, there are laws in place that allow people with previous criminal convictions to wipe their records clean. These must fall within certain circumstances, however, and only people convicted of specific types of crimes will be eligible to have their charges removed completely from their records. The process of removing a conviction entirely from a person's record is called Expungement, and David D. Diamond is the lawyer you need to assist you with this challenging process.
The Benefits of Expungment
When you have a criminal record, even when convicted of only a minor offense, it can cause a great deal of hardship in your life. There will come many times when you will be legally obligated to inform people of your criminal record; this can ruin your chances of getting a job, a loan, an apartment, or even getting accepted into college or an educational program.
Expungement allows people to have their records cleared, affording them the liberty to finally move on with their lives, and giving them back the same opportunities as the rest of the world. A mistake made in your past does not mean that you should suffer for it the rest of your life. As your Valencia Defense Attorney, David D. Diamond fully realizes this fact and will do whatever it takes to get your record expunged.
Expunging Your Criminal Record
If you have been charged with a crime in Valencia or Newhall, you may be eligible to file a petition for Expungement if:
- You have completed your sentence
- You were convicted of a non-violent offense
- You have spent a specific amount of time (2-10 years, depending upon the crime) in the community without any criminal convictions.
Expungement of your criminal record will securely seal or destroy any information that may hinder your future endeavors and it will only be obtained under limited circumstances. Santa Clarita Criminal Defense Lawyer David D. Diamond will help you determine your eligibility for Expungement and will then file the necessary documents to get your criminal record expunged.
