Grand Rapids Driver’s License Restoration & Record Expungement Lawyers
Helping You Move Forward with Your Life
If you have had your driver’s license suspended due to DUI/OWI or other offenses, Rodenhouse Law Group can help you fight to get your license restored. Although many people try to get their driver’s license restored on their own, navigating the process without the right team of attorneys usually results in failure and another 6 months to a year without a valid license.
Being without a driver’s license is costly and frustrating. Not only does having your driver’s license revoked limit your freedom, but it can seriously impact your ability to obtain or keep a job, take care of your kids, go to school, or just run errands. If your license has been taken away for any reason, rely on our experienced lawyers to help you get your driver’s license reinstated.
Call (616) 344-5066 today to discuss your case with our Grand Rapids driver’s license restoration and record expungement attorneys.
How to Recover Your License
To obtain your license again, you will be required to attend a hearing where you can prove to the office that whatever caused your driver’s license suspension is no longer an issue. That may include proving that your alcohol problem is under control, that you have demonstrated a willingness to follow the law, and that you will remain a sober, law-abiding citizen in the future.
These circumstances can be extremely difficult to prove, which is why you need a qualified, knowledgeable legal representative like those at Rodenhouse Law Group. We have experience filing the correct documentation and successfully completing the hearing process to get driver’s licenses reinstated within the State of Michigan.
Getting Your Record Expunged
The criminal defense lawyers at Rodenhouse Law Group are also experienced in criminal record expungement and getting convictions set aside. If you’ve served your time and want to move forward with your life, we can help you get your criminal record cleared.
Having a criminal record can impact your life in several ways, including:
- Prevent you from obtaining certain forms of employment
- Make you ineligible to obtain a professional license
- Disqualify you from higher education opportunities
- Restrict your ability to travel
The expungement process involves filing the right documents and notifying the appropriate law enforcement agencies of your application to have your criminal record set aside. After your application is filed, you will need to testify at a hearing as to why your criminal record should be cleared and demonstrate that you have not been involved with any other criminal activity.
Who Qualifies for Record Expungement?
Expungement is not available for every crime or in every circumstance. Our attorneys can help you determine if you qualify for record expungement in the State of Michigan.
There are several requirements you must meet prior to filing an application for expungement, including:
- You must not have any prior convictions that have been cleared from your record
- You must not have more than 1 felony and 2 misdemeanor convictions on your record
- You must wait 5 years after your conviction, completion of your jail sentence, or discharge from probation or parole before filing for expungement
