    What Can I Do to Get My Life Back After a Conviction?

    One of the most difficult challenges you will face after a conviction is rebuilding your life again. The lost time, impaired relationships, and missed career opportunities can make it difficult to have a fresh start. There are, however, certain legal options that can help make it easier to start over after a conviction. What follows are some of the most common forms of post-conviction relief.


    There are many different types of appeals that could be available to you after a conviction. There are also many different legal grounds for an appeal. For example, there could have been errors in the police process or the prosecutor’s handling of evidence. Your attorney might want to appeal the judge’s rulings during trial. There could even be questions about the judge’s interpretation of existing case law. If you have been convicted, it is important to consult with an experienced appellate attorney about all potential claims you might have to an appeal.

    It is important to understand that an appeal is not just a “get out of jail free” card. If a defendant wins on appeal, they might be entitled to a new trial. In addition, you might have the opportunity to challenge your sentence or other specific aspects of the conviction. The appellate court could even rule the error did not affect the outcome of your trial and let the conviction stand even with a legal error in the process. Your appellate lawyer will explain all possible grounds for appeal, the relief that could be available to you, and other options (such as clemency, pardons, or commutation of a sentence).

    Restoration of Civil Rights
    After a conviction, it can be difficult to simply reenter society and live your daily life. Unfortunately, there are many civil rights that are automatically taken away after a person is convicted of a felony. Though it might not be possible to change your criminal record, you can restore some of these civil rights in order to feel engaged in society. These civil rights include the right to own a gun, the right to vote, and the right to serve on a jury. California law allows you to petition the court to restore these rights to you. While you might still face difficulties in housing and employment, the restoration of civil rights can help you engage with society and take back some control over your life as you make a fresh start.

    By expunging your criminal record of a conviction, you can find that many areas of life become easier. You might have better success when applying for jobs or housing. You could find it easier to apply for credit or other financial services. There are many ways that expungement can help your life. It does, however, require a formal petition to be granted through the courts. Consult with a defense attorney about your particular case to learn how much time must pass after your conviction, what you must do to remain eligible for expungement. It can be difficult to go through this tedious process. Though it requires a significant investment of time and money, it can make a huge difference in your daily life. It should also be noted that California has far more expungement options than our neighboring states. (In Arizona, for example, there is virtually no expungement of adult criminal records.) If you stick with the process, you could find that many more opportunities are available to you.
