There’s no need for you and your family to suffer. If you have been convicted of a misdemeanor, you may be able to expunge (e.g. clear) your conviction. Some of the different types of misdemeanors that may qualify for an expungement, include:

Misdemeanors Don’t Go Away
Despite popular belief, misdemeanors occurring in the state of California do not just “go away.” In order for a misdemeanor to be expunged, an Expungement Petition must be filed and granted by the court the petition was filed in. If you do not take any action, your misdemeanor will appear on your record for decades. Having a misdemeanor on your record can negatively affect your life in many ways. A misdemeanor can ruin your job prospects and make you ineligible for professional licenses, student loans, health care, and child custody.
