File Destruction Services in Montreal
There’s a lot to see and do when you live in Montreal, but sometimes, the things we do can lead to some serious mistakes. Those mistakes may even be enough to result in an arrest, charges laid, and perhaps even a trial in court. However, that trial may not lead to a conviction, which means that you have no criminal record.
You would think then, that this means if anyone should conduct a background check on you, it will come up clear, just as it did before you were arrested. In truth, that’s not always the case, and if that’s something you want to address, you’ll need to request a file destruction.
If you are arrested, charged, and had your fingerprints taken, or even went to trial and had your case dismissed, withdrawn or you were found not guilty, there’s still evidence of this in your record. While it’s true that a background check will show that you have no criminal conviction, that same permanent record will still show that you have been arrested in your past and have fingerprints on record with the local police. The charges related to the arrest may also still be present, though of course it will be noted that the charges did not result in a conviction.
In other words, if you are arrested and fingerprinted, even if you have no criminal conviction on your record, a background check can still reveal that you were arrested in your past. It may even show the reason for the arrest.
