Act Fast Before the Law is Gone for Good!
Many interest groups and private organizations were (and still are) highly against these new laws, and has since faced considerable opposition. This very unpopular law may be repealed at any time, which means you need to take advantage of it while it’s still here! This is a once in a lifetime chance to clear your criminal history and move forward with a life you’ve always dreamed of living. However, not everyone with a criminal past will qualify.
There are several factors that determine who is eligible to get their record expunged or sealed in Indiana. Misdemeanors, class D felonies, arrest records, and more can all potentially be eliminated from a person’s criminal history depending on the circumstances of their case. The type of conviction or charge and how much time has passed are two primary factors considered by the state.
Filing for expungement on your own is never advised because the process is very complicated and confusing for someone unfamiliar with Indiana laws and procedures. On top of all the documents and papers that require proper filing, people filing for expungement can expect many more pitfalls and deadlines. In fact, one of the rules to expunging a criminal record is that a person can only file ONCE IN A LIFETIME. If a spelling error or similar minor mistake is made during the filing process, it could revoke your chance to expunge your criminal record, forever.
For this reason, you need a licensed Fishers criminal record expungement lawyer who is well-versed and experienced with the new expungement laws. They can help you with every aspect of filing, paperwork, deadlines, and more, and ensure your petition is managed correctly.
