How do You Fail a Background Check in Louisiana?

By November 27, 2019No Comments

Can you imagine getting a college degree, working your tail off and being denied employment, a professional license or apartment tenancy due to a failed background check?  This nightmare situation is within the realm of possibility for everyone. A failed background check severely limits your life chances. If an employer, apartment complex/landlord or academic institution states you have failed a background check, our attorneys are here to help.  We will work tirelessly to expunge your record and to clear your name of the supposed wrongdoing and set the stage for a successful future. This is the fresh start everyone deserves after closing the book on a dark chapter of their life or being framed for a supposed wrongdoing by an identity thief.

Common Reasons for Failing a Background Check

Employers, landlords, academic institutions, licensing agencies and other parties perform background checks on those seeking employment, an apartment or school admission.  These background checks are legal. Even the government conducts background checks before offering employment. Whether you work in finance, IT, security, childcare or are seeking a CDL license or other professional credential, you will likely need to pass a background check.  Even those looking to establish citizenship or travel to another country are likely to be subjected to a background check. The pressing question is why some people pass these analyses and why others fail.

When and why Background Checks are Performed

A wide variety of supposed transgressions can cause an individual to fail a background check.  Everything from a violent crime to embezzlement, a series of lesser offenses, alcohol/drug-related crimes, sexual crimes, income tax evasion, financial crimes and cyber crime can lead to a failed background check.  However, plenty of people who are perfectly innocent of the alleged transgression or crime fail background checks. A disturbing number of cases have popped up where innocent people applying for work, apartment tenancy or a professional license are denied due to a black mark on their record.  Many people fail background checks because they have an open warrant/attachment for their arrest they don’t even know about!  

If you fail a background check, you have the right to request a copy of the background check, bring it to your attorney and he or she will help clear your name.

Whether there is a mistake on your background check or if you are guilty of the crime in question, the bottom line is you will need the assistance of a savvy, hardworking attorney.  Let our record expungement attorneys spearhead your quest for justice. We will do everything in our power to remove the item in question from your background report. Once your record is expunged, you will be free and clear to apply to whatever job, academic institution or professional license you have your sights set on.  All you have to do is ask for help and we will navigate the murky legal waters to ensure you have a fair shot at educational attainment, employment, housing and subsequent financial success.

Do not let a Crime Committed Long ago Ruin Your Life

Even if you are guilty of a crime that appears on your permanent record, there is no reason for this offense to make your life a living hell.  You deserve the opportunity to obtain a college degree, professional license, apartment and employment that pays a living wage. However, the failure to expunge a criminal conviction from your record will preclude you from such opportunities.  It does not matter if you committed the crime last month or decades ago; the criminal conviction will remain on your record unless you ask for assistance from our experienced expungement attorneys. We will do everything necessary to clear the supposed transgression from your record and set the stage for acceptance into academic institutions, places of employment, licensing programs, apartments and beyond.
