Federal Clean Slate

The following link has some interesting information that might assist with the somewhat misleading thought process that expungement generates.

Clean Slate “rights”

A few highlights from the information found at the link.

There is no general federal expungement statute… Federal law treats state relief mechanisms (i.e. pardons, civil right restoration, expungement, sealing, set-aside) inconsistently.

There’s most likely even better sites of info for this topic.

For the SF86 reporting, as far as I can tell, there isn’t an expungement situation that can keep an issue from being reported if in the coverage period- one year, seven years, 10 years or ever.

Report all…regardless of who or what expunged.
