Sealing your Criminal Record in Fort Wayne
There are few of us that haven't made an error in judgment sometime in our pasts; when such an error leads to an arrest and/or conviction on a criminal charge, you then can have ongoing problems related to background searches on your name. Every time a prospective employer, landlord, business partner or even relationship partner does a background check, they discover that you were convicted of the crime. Even an OWI/DUI conviction can have a very serious effect on your future employment opportunities; in the current job market, with many people applying for one job, it is even more likely that you could passed over, based upon a conviction, even one that occurred years in the past. Those who want to clear their criminal record can take advantage of the ability to expunge the conviction from their record. Fort Wayne criminal defense attorney Gregory A. Miller can help.

An arrest can be expunged, which technically means that the information about the arrest is not available in a background check made by any public person. If you want to have a conviction removed from your record, you will need to take a legal action termed "post-conviction relief" or PCR. This process, when successful, allows you to have the record of the conviction vacated and allow you to move forward without the fear that your future prospects will be forever compromised from a conviction years in the past.
If you are concerned about your criminal record and any arrest or conviction that is available to those who look into your past, I can help. There are many cases in which all of these matters can be thoroughly resolved and you will no longer have to deal with the prejudice that can result when an arrest or conviction is found on your record. It is extremely beneficial to deal with this problem through legal channels, and I can advise you whether your arrest or conviction is eligible for this valuable service.
