Felony and Misdemeanor Expungement
Finding a job can be difficult. Finding a good job with a criminal record can be impossible.
Recent changes in Michigan law have made it possible for more people with Felony and Misdemeanor convictions to have some or all of their criminal convictions expunged.
Previously, a person was only able to have their record expunged if the only had one conviction and no more than two additional “minor offenses.” Under the amendment that went into effect in January of 2015 a person can petition to have one felony conviction set aside if that person has only been convicted of one felony and has no more than two additional misdemeanor convictions.
Furthermore, a person may also petition to have up to two misdemeanor convictions set aside if they have no more than two misdemeanor convictions and no felony convictions. However, certain misdemeanor and felony offenses such as operating while intoxicated and many criminal sexual conduct convictions can never be expunged.
