When it comes to interviewing for jobs, there is nothing more awkward and uncomfortable than waiting for that phone call back. So, to get a phone call just to tell you that you you’re not being hired can be incredibly demeaning, especially if they tell you it was due to your criminal history. However, if you were recently not given a job because of the records on your criminal history, there may still be hope for securing good employment due to Indiana’s Second Chance Law.
Continue reading to learn about Indiana’s Second Chance law, a legal principle known as criminal record expungement.
Indiana’s Second Chance Law
A new law regarding criminal record expungement, known as Indiana’s Second Chance Law, was recently passed in our state. This means certain people now qualify to have their criminal records eliminated from public records. It is Indiana’s first comprehensive criminal record expungement law. This is a significant opportunity that will open up numerous doors for the previously convicted. Peace of mind, job opportunities, and a clean record are just a few examples of how the new expungement law can help people with criminal records.
It’s a Once in a Lifetime Opportunity
When someone wants to explore their options for criminal record expungement, it is important to first and fully understand that a person can only apply and be granted expungement one time in their entire lives. This means you cannot apply to have additional criminal and arrest records expunged after already having your records concealed in the past.
If you decide to pursue criminal record concealment, be sure that all your paperwork, filing, deadlines, and additional requirements are accurate and in-line. Failing to file even one document, or filing it incorrectly, can instantly eliminate your chances of expunging your criminal history, forever. This is why it is vital to enlist the services of a licensed attorney, familiar with your state’s new expungement laws, to facilitate the entire process to ensure that everything is done properly.
