Conceal Your Criminal Record

Limited access orders are Pennsylvania’s newest form of relief for people seeking to conceal their criminal records from future employers.

The order prevents any non-criminal justice agency from accessing your criminal record.

Under Pennsylvania law, a limited access order will shield from potential employers criminal history record information for people convicted of a second- or third-degree misdemeanor, or an ungraded misdemeanor that carries a maximum penalty of no more than two years, so long as you have been free of arrest or prosecution for a period of 10 years.

At Spivak Law Firm, we help people seal or even erase their criminal records so they can move on with their lives.

Marriage and Divorce Rates

As the national divorce rate falls to its lowest point in decades, 73% of U.S. adults say divorce is “morally acceptable,” a recent Gallup poll finds. Divorce rates have fallen below the heightened levels of the 1980s and 1990s.

Researchers found that marriage rates have also fallen with more young adults delaying marriage. It may be that both marriage and divorce are no longer viewed in moral terms but rather seen as legal processes.

Child Custody: 3 Tips for Parents

Children thrive on routine. A shift in the family dynamic can be difficult for children.

You and your ex may follow a consistent child custody schedule, but shuttling back and forth between two homes can be confusing for the children.

To help your children adjust between exchanges, consider the following three tips:

  • Give the children a chart of the custody schedule;
  • Remind the children ahead of time when an exchange will take place; and
  • Remind the children when they will see you next.
