Clean Slate Clearinghouse

Want to help a client expunge a record in Utah, Virginia, or Guam, but don't know where to start? The Council of State Governments (with help from a number of other organizations and agencies) has just launched the Clean Slate Clearinghouse to help support juvenile and adult criminal-record clearance around the country. The Clearinghouse's stated goals are:

•Providing people with criminal records and non-legal service providers with accurate, up-to-date information on record clearance and mitigation as well as contact information for legal service providers in all U.S. states and territories;

•Supporting legal service providers currently engaged in record clearance work and giving new legal service providers the tools and resources they need to develop record clearance programs; and
 
•Giving policymakers the information they need to compare their state’s record clearance policies to those of other states and to learn about best practices.

Check it out, and spread the word.
