Assault is the most common type of conviction in Canada and happens often in homes, neighbourhoods, bars, and work areas across the country. It can happen in an instance of rage and next thing you know the police are being called and charging you for common or domestic assault, assault with a weapon, assault causing bodily harm or any combination of the above.
If you receive a criminal conviction after appearing in court then you have a criminal record which you will need to obtain a pardon or record suspension. If the criminal charges for assault are withdrawn, stayed, dismissed, peace bond or discharged, you will need to still obtain a file destruction to remove the fingerprints, photos, court and police records.
We help thousands of Canadians each year to remove their criminal record so that they can regain freedom in their lives and be safe for work and travel purposes.
Here is a note from a person we recently helped to obtain a record suspension for a domestic assault conviction:
“Thank you all for helping me to get my pardon, record suspension. After over 7 years since my fight with my brother, diagnosis of PTSD and now a pardon, this road to recovery is starting to feel better.”
“Part of this porcess was paid for by my ODSP back to work fund and is part of the reason why I’m writing this letter of thank you. I’m interested in going back to work and I’m interested in working in the steel industry in Hamilton.”
“I’m looking forward to having a criminal free life and finding work that allows me to be a contributing person in society.”
“Now that my assault conviction has been removed, I feel great.”
