Q: I have this on my background check after 21 years. How can I get it removed?
A: “This.” No idea what “this” is. If “this” thing on your background check is a criminal offense that is eligible for expungement, then you can get it removed. A criminal defense lawyer would need to know the exact charge and disposition before being able to answer whether whatever “this” is can be expunged. If it cannot be expunged, then post-conviction relief and/or a pardon from the Governor are long-shot options.
A: Depending on the charge and disposition, you may be able to get your record expunged. Speak with an attorney. You do not give any details concerning what it on the background check.
