Expunging DUI Record in Los Angeles
A DUI conviction can cast a dark shadow over your entire life. It not only affects your driving privileges, but, among other things it can also affect your ability to travel, your rights and your career. If you have had a DUI conviction in the past, it is only natural that you will want to wipe your record clean so that you can have a “fresh start.”
By getting your record expunged, you will be able to remove the previous DUI conviction from your record for most cases. Getting you record expunged can significantly increase your ability to obtain a job and travel freely. An expungement allows you to withdraw your guilty plea and have your case dismissed by a judge. Many employers will question your morals and sense of responsibility if a DUI conviction shows up on your background check.
Once you have expunged your record you will no longer be required to disclose the arrest on job applications, unless you are applying to work in the educational or public sector. If your job requires you to obtain a state license you will be required to expunge all prior criminal convictions to be eligible for the license.
Although expunging your record may not prevent immigration officials from learning about your arrest, it will indicate that you have completed your probation successfully and that the court has granted you an expungement because of your good behavior. To be eligible for an expungement you must meet the certain criteria set by the California Statute. If you are qualified your lawyer can file a petition with the court to have your record expunged. Getting a record expunged requires adequate skills and knowledge; therefore, it is essential that you select a lawyer that will help you to attain your goal.
