If your conviction is not eligible for expungement in Pennsylvania at this time, the other option for clearing your record is to seek a pardon. There are no minimum eligibility requirements to apply for a pardon.
After you receive a pardon, you will be eligible to completely expunge the conviction from your record. This will allow you to state that you were not convicted of the crime and it will make it as though the case did not occur.
With more than 80 percent of employers conducting background checks, obtaining a pardon is a great investment. See the Benefits section for more of the benefits of getting started on this process.
The process to receive a pardon in Pennsylvania is very lengthy. It is currently taking between 3 and 4 years for the Board to review an application. The Board operates on a first-come, first served basis, so the sooner you start, the sooner your conviction can be pardoned. After you receive a pardon, the conviction is eligible to be judicially expunged.
Our fee is broken down into two parts. The first flat-fee covers the application. We will obtain the application on your behalf, assist in preparing and review the application, and file the application with the Board of Pardons. If you are granted a hearing, there will be an additional fee to have an attorney help prepare you for and appear with you at the hearing before the Board.
We serve all of Pennsylvania and offer a low-price guarantee. Trust us to make sure you get a great deal and the best chance at receiving a pardon.
