What's On The WEST MICHIGAN'S HOT JOBS LIST?
You May Be Able to EXPUNGE A PRIOR CONVICTION
- Do you have a prior criminal conviction?
- Is your conviction preventing you from finding a job or starting a career?
The Clean Slate law makes it possible for more people to petition for an expungement. An expungement removes convictions from your public criminal record.
