Several years ago, I signed a false statutory declaration. I was given 2 years good behaviour and it was recorded on my criminal record. That was in 2010. Since then i have received a masters in social work but the criminal history is preventing me from gaining employment. I did have a lawyer at the time but she didnt push for them to not record anything on file. Is there any way to have this conviction hidden? I am 39 and besides 2 minor speeding fines have no other criminal history.
