Having a criminal record can take a major toll on several aspects of your life. One of our most basic needs – housing – can be difficult to find for those with criminal pasts. Those who have homes and apartments for rent often conduct criminal background checks and deny the applications of anyone who has a record. In other cases, those with records may find themselves having to put down much larger deposits than people who have clean background checks.
Employment can be another major hassle when you have a record. Look through the wanted ads and you’ll find no shortage of employers who require background checks during the hiring process. Perhaps worst of all, you don’t even know whether the particular mark on your record will keep you from getting the job, so you could easily either be wasting time applying at all or passing up real opportunities. Even if you do have a job, you could find yourself dreading the prospect of a promotion, which could carry a record check with it. Imagine getting fired instead of promoted because of what the company finds.
