In California, a Certificate of Rehabilitation is a statement from the court that you have successfully moved on with your life and are now an upstanding and law abiding member of society. This can be a crucial step in helping you get a job or into school. You may be eligible to apply for a certificate of rehabilitation if you have successfully completed your felony sentence and have kept out of trouble.
The application process generally requires the gathering of sufficient evidence of your rehabilitation, which may include letters of reference and other documents. Having a lawyer by your side who understands the process can make a big difference in your case. Even individuals who are not eligible for a certificate of rehabilitation may still be eligible to apply for a Governor's pardon.
