Top 10 Reasons to Use a Lawyer for Expungement
Reason 7: Removal of Public Records
The purpose of going through the Ohio expungement process is to seal past criminal record, so you are not limited by a public record search. What good is an expungement if the record is not truly sealed? You want to be confident that when you go through the process, that your record is fully expunged and not visible on a public records database.
Updates to public record databases is a standard service for all expungement clients that we represent. After we win an expungement for our clients, we make certain the records are removed from public data bases at the county level, and at the state level, and so that the State will properly serve the FBI, when applicable.
I am so happy to hear that my case has already removed from the online court records website! I no longer have to worry about it being the big black mark on my record. I will be forever grateful to you and your firm for helping me finally get my life back. – S.S.
Public Record Updates are not always included
Not all firms include this very important step. We have had clients come to us after working with other expungement attorneys, and we found that they chose to go with the lowest quote, only to find out that updating public record databases is an extra fee. If you are researching expungement firms in Ohio, and comparing your options, make sure that this important step is included in any fee contract that you sign. If not, the process will take long, you’ll end up paying more, and you could miss out on a great opportunity.
