A criminal conviction affects many areas of your life

Posted by Bulldog Law | Apr 07, 2024 | 0 Comments

If you're facing criminal charges and you are worried about a conviction, you've probably started by thinking about the potential time you'd have to spend in jail or the fines that you'd have to pay. This is going to be a very significant change in your life, so you're looking into criminal defense options and trying to avoid such ramifications.

At this time, it is important to remember that a conviction, especially on felony charges, could have a bigger impact on your life than you may have realized. It could go far beyond the fines and time behind bars. Let's look at a few ways that this can happen.

It may be harder to get a job

To start with, you could find it difficult to obtain employment. Employers are sometimes willing to hire those with a record, but they are certainly not obligated to do so. If employers have numerous applicants, they may be more likely to hire those who do not have a criminal record.

Additionally, a conviction could cost you the job that you have. Even if it's not a highly public issue that brings negative publicity to the business, they may simply have to replace you with another worker while you serve your time. There's no guarantee you'll get that job back when you get out.

It can hinder financial opportunities

Your record could also impact your finances or the opportunities you have to obtain lines of credit or get loans. For example, you may find it harder to rent an apartment or get a home mortgage loan, meaning that your record is preventing you from finding proper housing.

These are just a few of the ways that a permanent record can change your life, but you can see why it's so important to understand all of the legal options you have when facing serious charges.
