With today’s advanced technology, it has become easier than ever before for anyone to find personal information regarding another person. Employers often check to see whether a potential hire has a past criminal record before offering him/her a job and insurance companies also look at this information when calculating rates. In fact, your record could even affect your chances of renting an apartment or being approved for a home loan.
In some cases, if a number of criteria have been met, an expungement may be available to wipe the charges from your criminal record. This would, in essence, prevent third-parties from using any criminal record you may have against you.
