i am in Columbus, Ohio. The judge just said he would not expunge it. I did not have an attorney, and went to court myself. I work for a bank in mortgages, and have since then , 2008, i have been promoted and use FHA, and FHA is doing another background check. I do not want to loose my job. I had an attorney to represent me for the felony charge, and he said i should not have gotten charged, but i did.
I appreciate your time and any assistance!
I appreciate this information, and I have called an attorney, they are charging aprox $2500 to begin, does this sound reasonable, and is there some way to have a reduced cost?
