The best way to answer your question is to carefully read the question with respect to listing any felony convictions that you may have. If the question is "have you ever been convicted of a felony?" the best way to answer the question is truthfully.

You might consider consulting with a criminal defense attorney about seeing if you might be able to get your felony criminal conviction expunged. Not all petitions for such are granted however.

The attorney providing the answer was not serving as the attorney for the person submitting the question or in any attorney-client relationship with such person. Laws may vary from state to state, and sometimes change. Tiny variations in the facts, or a fact not set forth in a question, often can change a legal outcome or an attorney's conclusion. Although AttorneyPages.com has verified the attorney was admitted to practice law in at least one jurisdiction, he or she may not be authorized to practice law in the jurisdiction referred to in the question, nor is he or she necessarily experienced in the area of the law involved. Unlike the information in the Answer(s) above, upon which you should NOT rely, for personal advice you can rely upon we suggest you retain an attorney to represent you.
