People make mistakes, but those who learn from their past shouldn't have to shoulder the burden of a criminal record for the rest of their lives. Expungement, or the removal of a criminal conviction from your record, can be a complicated task, but it has the power to profoundly change everything for the better.

In Michigan, it's also known as Setting Aside a Conviction, and it can help your ability to get a job, take out a loan or obtain housing.
