You may have found that certain aspects of your life have been tougher to deal with ever since you were convicted of a misdemeanor crime. While a misdemeanor isn’t as serious as a felony, a conviction may have put a hold on several job opportunities that you would have liked to have. Fortunately, through the expungement, you may be eligible to have your charges and convictions sealed from your record. Depending on the severity of your misdemeanor, you may be able to have your conviction cleared from your criminal history. However, certain misdemeanors, particularly ones that involve some type of violence, may cause you to be ineligible. Consult with an expungement attorney to determine your eligibility status today.

Are Violent Crimes Eligible for Expunction?

Violent crimes can be tricky to get expunged from your record. Depending on the circumstances of your conviction, the type of crime, and the severity of the crime, you may be eligible to have your record expunged. A violent crime does not automatically make you ineligible for expungement but it can certainly make it more difficult. Every case is different so it is best to speak with a criminal defense lawyer in Delaware about what options are available for you.

Are Felony Charges Eligible for Expunction?

Felonies are serious crimes but that does not mean you can’t have them sealed from your record. As long as you haven’t been convicted for a felony over a certain number of times, you may be eligible to have your conviction and charges expunged. However, if your felony conviction was a first or second-degree offense, you may not be able to have your conviction wiped away. To determine whether or not your felonies are eligible for expunction, you should consult with one of our expungement lawyers as soon as possible. Doing so can help you and your family move forward in life.
