The Ultimate Felony Guide
You have questions about felonies and we have answers. Whether you're trying to find out if you can expunge a felony, whether you can own a gun as a felon or how long a felony will stay on your record, we have you covered. Maybe you have another question - go ahead and browse the site, you will most likely find what you're looking for.

If you don't see what you are looking for feel free to ask your question - it will be answered by other visitors on the site. Please note that this is not legal advice - if you have been charged with a crime or are trying to get it expunged you should talk to a local attorney!

Find a job
We have an active community of people who have made mistakes in their past. One of the reasons that people reoffend is that they cannot find gainful employment - when somebody is put out on the streets and can't find a job they often resort to a life of crime.

For this reason we have started a new page about jobs for convicted felons - this is a work in progress, but if you are aware of companies that hire convicted felons please comment on this page (just scroll to the bottom of the page and you will see the contact form). This will help us in our goal to find felons gainful employment - working people commit less crimes which is good for taxpayers, inmates and the public at large.

Life after a felony
If you or somebody you know has been charged with a felony you might wonder what you can expect. As a felon you lose certain rights. In most states felons are not allowed to vote - this is commonly known as felony disenfranchisement. Felons also have restrictions on owning guns, are often ineligible for federal loan programs and can have poor credit scores as a result of the felony.
