Felon in Florida looks to expungement to get jobs

Felon in Florida looks to expungement to get jobs


Felon in Florida looks to expungement to get jobs
I was convicted in the state of Florida for 5 counts of fraud I did my probation 2.5 (was given 5) paid restitution and now looking for work why is is that when an employer does a background check on me the status says active? Next I am in the process of trying to get this sealed/expunged. When that is settled will I be able to get a security license so I can work as a security guard or how about my RN license as I am currently in school working on that, am I wasting my time?


Thanks


Felon in Florida looks to expungement to get jobs



Unfortunately many people believe that sealing or expungement of records will erase their criminal records. In most cases and in most states, expungement means that their convictions will invisible to the public. The will always be visible to law enforcement, the court system and government agencies. Since most licensing is done through state agencies, expungement will not help them.

Many ex-offenders and felons looking for jobs seek legal counsel before the can start an effect job search just to see how their records will impact their ability to get jobs. I suggest contacting your local legal aid office to see just how viable an option expungement is for you. Next I would contact the agencies that issue the licenses you want to see if you are eligible.

Felon in Atlanta needs help finding Jobs

Felon in Atlanta needs help finding Jobs


Felon in Atlanta needs help finding Jobs
My husband just relocated here to Atlanta to be with his family. He is a convicted felon. It has been hard for him to find a job for many reasons. For one, I work two jobs to support us and he stays home with our two youngest children (we have 5) during the day. Secondly, we do not know a lot of people here in Atlanta,GA to network with. And of course....its hard to get a job period, add a felony to it and it is even harder!

We are searching for possible job search programs that will help us get childcare and help him be able to look for employment. I am on waiting list for assistance for childcare but I have been waiting for months. We can not afford childcare without him working. It is only by Gods grace that we have made it this far. Any advice or suggestions would be great!!!!

Thanks

Felon in Florida seeks career in health care

Felon in Florida seeks career in health care


 Felon in Florida seeks career in health care
Dear Sir,

I bumped into this article on line. I'm from Sarasota Florida. I have two felony charges for drug possession. One is thirteen years the other eight years old. Will I be able to get my certification, or will I be denied because of these charges. I have completed all terms of probation years ago and have since turned my life around. Still I have much anxiety and guilt when I have to apply to any situation. I'm a wonderful person and have been in the home health business for a few years as a companion caregiver. Anything I can do?

Thanks much for your time.

Robert

Trying to get a job with a misdemeanor

Trying to get a job with a misdemeanor



Trying to get a job with a misdemeanor
I have a misdemeanor on my record which is forgery and its hard finding a job. Do you have any tips on how to get a job with that on my record?

Jam,








Trying to get a job with a misdemeanor




Hello Jam,

Your particular charge is what is classified as an "integrity" crime. This means you will have a very difficult time getting a job anywhere money or valuables are at risk. You will definitely need to change your line of work.  My suggestion to you is to contact your local One-stop career center. They have a lot of services that can help unemployed people in different situations get jobs. Many of the counselors at these centers have experience assisting people with criminal backgrounds. You may also find success applying to smaller companies that tend to do less exhaustive background checks than larger companies. Ex-offenders and felons often have more success finding jobs when the know where to look.

Felon with sex offense wants to join the military

Felon with sex offense wants to join the military


Felon with sex offense wants to join the military
Found your website while searching "felon" info and thought I would take a chance.

When my son was 19, he had come home from college for the summer, earned his black belt in Tae kwon Do, and made the mistake of having a relationship with a 15 year old girl in his karate class. She was working on her black belt and had an immense crush on my son...and vice versa. They had known each other for several years--and were both very talented "karate kids."
Anyway, they broke it off when he went back to school--but remained friends.

The young lady went to counseling a year later for some unrelated family issues and revealed that she had a boyfriend a year ago and they had sex. Bingo...the therapist calls the state, the state arrests my son, who is now 20 almost 21, and presses charges...4 counts of sex with a minor. Neither girl nor her family pressed charges against my son. In addition, we were told that because he had recently earned his black belt degree that he was considered "someone of higher responsibility" and that is why the state decided to prosecute. I might add that he was in the process of applying for the Indiana State Trooper program--was almost there! BIG NIGHTMARE for our family since this son was the one who never drank, partied, smoked...just a good, sweet, loving kid and born again Christain... who did something really dumb based on emotion.

The deal was this, 6 months house arrest and 3 years probation which we have almost completed...without grumbling I might add. Felony reduced to misdemeanor as soon as probation ends actually on 9/16/10. He has been planning to join the military... to do good in the world and serve the country he loves. What are his chances? He talked to an recruiter (about 6 months ago) about Indiana air guard and was told not just no-- but never.

I appreciate your time.


 Felon with sex offense wants to join the military



 I know quite a few young men in your son's same situation. The good news is that his charge will be downgraded to a misdemeanor.  From time to time the military grants waivers to recruits who have criminal records.  Most are moral waivers, which include some felonies and misdemeanors.

The only military branch offering waivers to ex-offenders is the Army. He may find more success there.  The Army recruiter will tell him exactly what to do to get the process started.  It is totally up to the Army to grant the waiver.

I hope this helps.
