What Are The Benefits Of Having A DUI Expunged In California?

An expungement can help with prospective employment opportunities, housing, immigration, travel outside the U.S., applying for loans, obtaining lines of credit, and virtually any other scenario where a background check is performed. Once the judge grants an expungement, your record of conviction is replaced with a finding of not guilty and your case is dismissed.

One of the primary benefits of this is that you can legally and truthfully say “No” to the question, “Have you ever been convicted of a crime?” This can be very important, since the disclosure of a criminal conviction will often result in disqualification for an employment opportunity. With that said, application for many professional licenses in California require full disclosure of any prior convictions, including those that have been expunged.

In addition to potential employers, potential landlords and credit reporting agencies often perform background checks. As a result, a DUI conviction could prevent you from being able to rent or buy a house. An expungement can also speed up the process of re-obtaining TSA pre-check clearance (this isn’t guaranteed, but getting the conviction expunged certainly wouldn’t hurt).
