Additional Information

  1. If you are on probation or parole, in addition to your record review, you must submit supporting documentation from your probation/parole officer, along with their contact information.
  2. Anyone is welcome to send personal references, which may include letters from counselors, parole/probation officers, current/past employers and/or religious advisors.
  3. If your conviction was outside of NYS, you must submit equivalent paperwork form the state in which the conviction occurred.  Usually by starting with the state's department of justice website, you will easily find information about how you can obtain this record.
