Background Checks and DUI Convictions in Oklahoma
Background checks are routine procedure for many things you may want or need: a job, a loan, or even a place to live. But did you know that a DUI conviction could keep you from reaching these goals?
What’s On a Background Check?
A background check contains information that a potential employer, lender, school or landlord needs to make a decision about creditworthiness and dependability, including:
- Employment history
- Credit history
- Criminal history
A DUI conviction is not something that most people take lightly, and having one on your record could make it very difficult or impossible for you to be hired, obtain a loan, get into a college or university or even qualify for a place to live.
Is Expungement an Option?
Depending on the specifics of your case, it may be possible to have a DUI conviction expunged or removed from your record, which would mean that it would not show up on any future background checks.
