Clear your record Everett

There are many different reasons to seek a clear record.

A criminal charge on your record could prevent you from finding work, almost all employers in the city of Everett now perform criminal background checks on prospective employees. The internet has made it cheaper and easier than ever to accomplish such searches. A simple check with the Washington State Patrol will tell employers if you have ever been convicted of a crime, even if you were convicted in the Everett Municipal Court and not the County District or Superior courts. Having your record cleared, vacated, or sealed can prevent employers from ever learning about your past charge.

If you have been convicted of a felony in the past you may be surprised to learn that your right to possess a firearm has been revoked. This is often the case even if the crime you were convicted of does not involve a firearm or weapon of any sort, or even violence. Washington State law requires the Snohomish County Superior Court in Everett to revoke these firearm rights as a mandatory procedure whenever a conviction for a felony is entered. You need to know that clearing your record will not automatically restore your right to own a firearm, the Snohomish County Superior Court requires a special petition to restore fire arm rights. The best option you have for getting your firearm rights restored is to contact an attorney experienced in clearing records, as they will be knowledgeable about the intricate court procedures involved in this process.

You may find that you are having difficulty securing a loan for student aid, to buy a home, or to start a business as a result of an old criminal conviction on your record. Property values in Everett are as low now as they have been in a very long time, and people who are in a position to take advantage of this real estate down turn stand to do very well for themselves when the market returns.

A less fortunate reality of the economic downturn is the fact that it is also harder to find a job in Everett than it has been in a long time. Many people are trying to help themselves out of this situation by starting small businesses and creating jobs for themselves.
