While everyone makes mistakes, having that mistake permanently on your record can result in lost opportunities. Having a criminal conviction on your record can create problems with applications, career options, and much more. In many cases, there is post-conviction relief such as criminal expungement which allows for a conviction to be erased from your record as though it never happened.
If your case in not eligible for expungement, you may be eligible for an Order of Non-Disclosure. An Order of Non-Disclosure seals your record from public domain. While this will not eradicate your record completely, it will, with the exception of certain government agencies, make your record inaccessible to the public. This can be extremely beneficial whether in applying for a job or for your own peace of mind.
