For almost all of us there are moments in our past that make us take a step back and reflect on the current path we are on. If you have been accused of a crime and the case is ongoing, it is in your best interest to hire an attorney. While a case is ongoing, an attorney is able to start working on an expunction, if you are interested in having your record be permanently sealed. Having a criminal record is something that can follow you around for the rest of your life, but it doesn’t have too. The attorneys at Southworth & Stamman have been successful in handling expunctions and ensuring that your past will stay sealed so long as there is not a court order to have it opened again.
Apart from having the peace of mind of putting your past behind you, a successful expunction helps an individual to find better employment, get an apartment, go to a certain school, or enjoy other liberties that may have been hindered due to your criminal past. In Adams County, Wisconsin, the guidelines for expunging a record include an individual being under the age of 25 at the time of the offense, excluding certain felonies, successfully completing their sentence, and if probation was enforced, it not being violated.
