If you have a conviction in Pennsylvania, it can keep you from being able to find good employment or housing. With PA's current expungement laws, if you have a misdemeanor or felony conviction on your record, it is very likely that you are not eligible to expunge your records through the court process. However, there is another option in Pennsylvania. You can apply for a pardon from the Governor, and we want to help you apply for a pardon. Once your case is pardoned, you are eligible to have it judicially expunged.

A pardon application in Pennsylvania is sent to the Board of Pardons and Parole. They review the application first and decide whether to grant a hearing. If you are granted a hearing, you get to attend the hearing in Harrisburg with an attorney there to represent you. You get to present your case as to why you are rehabilitated and why you need and deserve to have your conviction pardoned. If the Board's vote is in favor of the pardon, it is sent on to the Governor for final approval.

Am I Eligible for a Pardon?

There are no eligibility requirements for a pardon in Pennsylvania. Anyone can apply to have their case pardoned. Each case is reviewed in detail and each application is considered based on the specifics on the case(s) involved and the applicant. Some factors that the Board may consider include:

  • How much time has elapsed since the conviction
  • If you have been crime free during that time since the case
  • The number and seriousness of the crimes on your record
  • Completion of all court requirements, including probation, parole and payment of fines and costs
  • Proof of Rehabilitation - demonstrated through positive changes to career, education, family or through community service or volunteering
  • Specific need for the pardon - such as a specific job or activity you cannot obtain or participate in because of the conviction
  • Impact on the victim; if your crime involved a victim, her or she or the family will be notified and allowed to appear at the hearing if they wish.

How to Start the Pardon Process

We start the same day you sign up. Having handled more than 12,000 cases, we know how to get records cleared as fast as possible. The process to receive a pardon in Pennsylvania is very lengthy. It is currently taking between 3.5 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 also have a low-price guarantee. Just show us a competitors quote or ad and we will match it.

Our exclusive Expedited Record Clearance Update service allows us to have the leading background check companies reflect changes to your criminal record in less than 14 days, instead of months and even years like our competitors.
