Hello everyone, I need some advice and recommendations.

My wife has some old felonies (3) on her record and we would like them removed so she can have her full rights restored. Because they are in separate states, we are writing the governors of each as well as POTUS. So what I would appreciate from everyone here is:

1) has anyone done this before (successfully preferably) that can give advise?

2) What should be included in the letters?

Thanks in advance

Not that Ive ever heard of. Thats the cost of knowing better but stll committing the crime. It stays with you.

There are cases where one's record (say as a juvenile) can later be expunged....but Ive never heard of clearing a criminal record without a whole new trial...which could end of worse...

Think about it though...to say one once had committed and paid for mistakes when younger...and that theyve learned from those mistakes...shows far more strength and remorse that theyve reevaluated their lives...than to make the crime-convictions disappear.

That is the price paid for bad judgment. If she's done wonderful since and become a valued member of society....then again....that is worth more than making her/his history disappear like it never happened.

Crime is crime and those records follow you through life.

You may want to do some research on LegalZoom or Nolo to find out if there is some useful information on there. Or if you have any friends who are experienced in law.

You would likely need to present a lot of documents, evidence of your wife's recent employment or community service activities, etc. anything to show that she has changed her lifestyle and is contributing to society in a positive way. The more documentation and "proof" you can present, the better chance you have to see the outcome you are hoping for

Don't you need to submit a petition to the pardon attorney? You won't get far here without disclosing what kind of crimes she committed, which you probably don't want to do. The process is different for different crimes.

Yes they stay with a record. However, with a full pardon . . . full rights are restored.

Was she prosecuted federally, or by the state?

More than likely, she needs to follow the steps outlined here: Pardon Application

Of course...but quite an expensive and lengthy process with no positive guarantee.

BUT...one could petition the Governor of the State the crime was committed in and conviction received....unless if course in another country. Then I dont know...

But worth trying....
