Applying for a Certificate of Relief from Disabilities in New York

You are eligible for a Certificate of Relief from Disabilities if you only have one felony and any number of misdemeanors. If you have two or more felony convictions that are from the same indictment it will be counted as one conviction so you would still be eligible to apply.

If you have more than one felony, then you will not be eligible for a Certificate of Relief from Disabilities but you may be eligible for a Certificate of Good Conduct, which has much of the same effects as a Certificate of Relief from Disabilities, there is just a waiting period before you can apply.

A Certificate of Relief from Disabilities may remove any legal disability or bar that resulted from your conviction. The certificate creates a presumption of rehabilitation for you regarding your specified conviction. It does not remove your conviction from your record. However, New York government agencies that issue licenses must consider this certificate when deciding to give you a license. This is also true of New York employers; they must consider your certificate when you apply for a job with them.

Certificates of Relief can be issued either by the sentencing court or the Department of Corrections and Community Supervision. If your conviction resulted in a commitment to a NY correctional facility or was in a federal court or other state court (and you reside in NY), then your Certificate would be issued by the Department of Corrections and Community Supervision, and all other cases would be handled by the sentencing court. In order to grant the certificate, the issuing authority must find that the relief to be granted by the certificate is consistent with your rehabilitation and with the public interest.

Furthermore an investigation into your circumstances will be conducted and will include (but is not limited to) examining your employment history and other means of support, proof of payment of your income taxes for the last three years and proof of payment of restitution and fines.

Check now to see if you are eligible to get a Certificate of Relief or any other types of post-conviction relief by taking a few moments to fill out this eligibility evaluation; it is free and confidential.
