Defense in Glenwood Springs
What is sealing and how does it work?
If your criminal history is haunting you, it may be time to protect yourself
from that history by sealing that record. Maintaining a clean record is
incredibly beneficial to your future. Even one arrest on your criminal
report can make it difficult to find jobs, gain financial assistance,
and perserve personal relationships.
I've been convicted. Can I get it cleared?
In Colorado, many drug convictions and all petty offense and municipal
convictions are subject to sealing. All cases involving the successful
completion of a deferred judgment probation can be sealed. Also, any arrest
for which the charges were dismissed can be sealed. This means that your
history cannot be disclosed and will not be available to the public eye.
Most importantly, once sealed the law authorizes you to deny the event
There are a number of circumstances where a criminal record can hinder you:
- When you are applying for a loan
- When you are buying a home
- When you are trying to rent an apartment
- When you are applying for a job
- When you are attempting to further your education
- When you are opening a line of credit
Since every employer, bank lender, and landlord will do a background check
on a potential employee or renter's criminal record, the expungement
process can save you a lot of hassle and possible embarrassment. The lawyers
at Greer Law Firm, PC,
have the knowledge to help restore your life.
