In many cases, the answer is yes. It depends on your record and the level of charges, but Connecticut offers three types of pardons that will provide a clean slate or, at minimum, a certificate of employability, even if you've been convicted of a felony or misdemeanor. With a pardon, you'll have better access to jobs, professional licenses, housing, loans and other key areas where a criminal record can set you back in life.
Also known as expungement, a pardon offers a fresh start. But it's a legal process that involves administrative work, filing paperwork and court hearings. Overall, the process often takes eight to 10 months. It requires a precise administrative process and a court hearing, which is why it is best to work closely with a lawyer to achieve your goal.
