Why Is Expungement Beneficial?

When expungement is a possibility, it is a very worthwhile objective to pursue. Once a criminal record is expunged, government agencies cannot report what was once there when a background check is conducted. In the case of arrests that did not lead to conviction, it is also possible to have records of those arrests removed. As a result, you can move forward with a clean slate and happier livelihood with a record expungement.
