Your criminal record does not change when you move out of state.¬† However, the relevance of the record my be decreased if you move away from that state as it might be less likely that an employer in another state will check your record in the state where your record is.¬†
With national background checks being very economical for most employers, the chances are your record in another state will still be found by employers in Michigan.¬†¬† If possible, you should seal or expunge your record in your state before moving out of the state.
I would¬†agree with the previous comments submitted by RecordGone.com.¬† However, I would add that we are receiving an increasing number of requests for legal¬†representation from individuals who reside outside the state of Ohio to have their old Ohio criminal record expunged and sealed. The majority these requests are motivated from employment related matters. However, a number of people have indicated their request¬†are motivated from licensing requirements, student loan requirements, housing requirements, etc….¬†
If the person¬†is eligible for an expungement in Ohio, I would recommend that they¬†strongly considering an expungement and sealing of that record. Many people wait until they are graduating from school, applying for a¬†job, or some other pressing reason, to contact us to begin the Ohio¬†expungement process.¬† Often this may delay their plans or potentially cause them to miss opportunity because the time required to obtain the expungement and sealing through the legal process.¬† It's better to have an expungement and sealing completed before you need it than to wait until time when you have to have it to begin the process.
If you would like to speak with us concerning¬†an Ohio expungement, please feel free to contact us at your convenience. Thank you
