Applying for a pardon can be an overwhelming and daunting process. There are so many factors to think about and things to do. This is why staying organized throughout this process will be essential in making the process as simple as it can be. Before you get started with your pardon, consider these factors related to the pardon. Thinking about these things now will help simplify the pardon process.
Getting an Attorney
You may be struggling with wanting to apply for a pardon, but questioning whether you have time to actually go through the entire legal process with a job, family, and other responsibilities. Time should not stop you from getting your name cleared. Before applying for a pardon, you should consider hiring an attorney to help you through the process. An attorney can take over many of the aspects of the pardon application that make it stressful.
Here are some ideas on how to get started with finding a pardon attorney. First, ask any friends or family members that have applied for a pardon in the past. Your friends and family who have already done the research may be able to give you some information and recommendations on pardon attorneys. Second, you may want to do a search online for pardon attorneys. When doing this search, specifically look for attorneys who provide information about the process, testimonials, and articles. This will give you a sense of the attorney’s abilities.
Having an attorney assist you with the pardon application process will make it easier to manage the time demands of the process, and will ease your mind when it comes time to go in front of the Board of Pardons for the hearing. Having an attorney in your corner who knows the legal terminology and the process can improve your chances of submitting the best application you can, and getting a thorough hearing in front of the Board.
Think About Personal Recommendations
When applying for a pardon, you need to include letters from others that can speak to your character. Start brainstorming and coming up with a list of people that you can ask to write a letter for you. You may want to reach out to these people now, so they can have time to make a decision and get the letter written.
When thinking of people to ask for recommendations, consider employers who you had a good relationship with or who promoted you, close family members or friends who know your personality and character traits, or people who have worked side by side with you on work projects, community service, or school. These people could provide good recommendations for you.
