Don’t let your past arrest hold you back, your new and clear future awaits you!
THE EXPUNGEMENT LAW IN ALABAMA IS VERY IMPORTANT
Have you ever heard that your arrest record can follow you for your whole life? Many people do not realize that in Alabama even if your prior charge was dismissed, nolle prossed, “no billed” by a grand jury, you were found “not guilty” at a jury or judge trial, or any other form of non-conviction – your arrest records still show that you were arrested for the charge and can appear on certain background checks UNLESS you successfully receive an Order of Expungement from the proper court in Alabama. Without an expungement in Alabama, your record of arrest will show up on law enforcement records and background checks. You could be turned down by potential employers, auto and home lenders, colleges and many more. Even if you were arrested by mistake, charges were dropped, or you were found “Not Guilty.” Most employers will conduct a background check when considering your job application. Don’t let the record of an arrest cause your application to be denied.
“Don’t let your past arrest handcuff your future career.” Just think, without an expungement, every time you fill out a job application your potential employer can see you were arrested in Alabama on a criminal background check. Your current employer may do a background check on you and see your past criminal record. Don’t get passed up for the promotion you’ve been working so long and hard for because you did not get your arrest record in Alabama expunged. If you are applying for a job position, you need to have your arrest wiped clean in Alabama if you qualify, so you will stand out as an applicant for the position.
Your job position, what vehicle you drive, where you live, what college or university you will get accepted to, may all depended upon what is found in your background check. You may be trying to get a loan to buy your first car or truck or even one for your teenager. If you are applying for a certificate or license, the process for your approval can take much longer or be denied. Whether you are needing to get your first apartment, a starter home for your new family or the house you have always dreamed of, it can all be affected by your criminal arrest record.

Your life could change and new doors of opportunities open, that were impossible before, all by just having your Alabama arrest record expunged.
