Seal Your Criminal Record Attorneys
For decades, Pennsylvania offered virtually no relief for people convicted of misdemeanors and felonies to move beyond their criminal records and join the workforce. But now the Pennsylvania legislature has provided a new form of relief for people convicted of qualifying misdemeanors through what are called limited access orders.
Unlike an expungement, a limited access order does not erase your criminal records. Instead, it restricts employment agencies and internet websites from accessing any information relating to a conviction or arrest.
To determine if you are eligible for a limited access order, call Spivak Law Firm at (412) 344-4900 or toll free at (800) 545-9390.
Eligibility to Seal your Criminal Record
Criminal defendants are largely eligible to seal qualifying misdemeanor convictions from their record so long as they have had a 10-year period free from any misdemeanor and felony convictions following the final disposition of their case.
Most misdemeanor convictions are eligible assuming all court fees are paid and sentencing terms have been completed. Felony convictions are not eligible for sealing at this time.
To schedule a consultation with a record sealing attorney, call Spivak Law Firm at (412) 344-4900 or toll free at (800) 545-9390.
