How to Retrieve Your Criminal Record

How to Retrieve Your Criminal Record?

There are many reasons why you may have a criminal record linked to your name. Maybe it was for something foolish you did many years ago. Maybe, for the most part, you do not even think about it. But anytime your background gets checked, your criminal record is likely being reviewed. If you are curious what your record looks like and would like to obtain a copy, you are legally entitled to do so. Here’s how you can get it.

Acquiring a Record

There are a few different ways you can obtain your record, and it is worth noting that both federal and state law enforcement agencies keep criminal records. Your first option is to visit your local police department and see if they have your record. Sometimes local police departments only keep local arrests and convictions; however, an officer will be able tell you if that is the case or not. The better route is to contact the FBI, state police, or your state bureau of investigation. These options may require you to submit fingerprints, just as a small note.

Correcting a Record

On occasion, you may find that your record includes an error. Small errors may actually be detrimental to you. Such as if a misdemeanor is logged as a felony or if someone with the same name as you have their convictions listed under your record. If you have noticed an error, be sure to ask the state to correct it.

Clearing a Record

Having a criminal record can certainly affect some of your everyday dealings. If you have stayed out of trouble since being convicted, you may be able to request that your record be sealed or expunged. If you do successfully get your record sealed or expunged, law enforcement agencies may still be able to access it. However, you will be able to truthfully say that you do not have a criminal record when talking to your employer or landlord.

Many people do not realize that they can obtain important legal documents like their criminal record. Colorado Attorney Services has many years of experience locating and organizing all sorts of important legal documents. If you need to find your social security, workers compensation or other legal document in an efficient manner, we can help you!
