Recently, it has been revealed that nearly a third of American adults have their names listed in an FBI criminal-records database, many of which include arrests without charges. This has become a concern for many people today since numerous companies use this online database for conducting a background check on an individual. If this is affecting you, one way to deal with it legally is to seek an expungement to clear, or at least hide, these charges from your potential employers.
With nine out of ten businesses getting background checks on their prospective employees, some might find it hard to find employment due to existing criminal records. In addition to wreaking havoc on your job search, it also makes it difficult to acquire a loan, professional license, or even getting accepted into college. If you’re among the many people caught in this dilemma, exploring the possibility of an expungement with the help of a trusted Sacramento expungement lawyer might be the right move.
