Express Pardons Site and Product Policies
EXPRESS PARDONS helps its customers make applications for Canadian pardons, U.S. entry waivers (I-192), non-conviction record purges, and criminal record searches by carefully preparing the necessary documents, conducting inquiries, and acquiring supporting documents to prepare petitions to the appropriate government agencies to obtain a pardon, U.S. entry waiver, confirmation of file destruction, or to acquire copies of criminal information.
We do not provide legal advice. Should you require legal assistance, please consult a lawyer.
EXPRESS PARDONS guarantees our best efforts in accurately preparing the necessary documents for the customer. No pardon service company can guarantee the ultimate success of a pardon, entry waiver, record purge or criminal record search. The accuracy of any documents prepared by EXPRESS PARDONS depends on the information provided by the customer during the application process. EXPRESS PARDONS will not be held liable for the failure of any application made on the customer’s behalf, under any circumstances.
