Default Jobs after release

My husband is a felon (DUI, Grand Theft) and has mental health issues. I have bad credit from a previous marriage...Besides OneStop, is there anything else a Yuma based person could consider? My bad credit is like a felony that will never go away...also our age is a factor...I'm over 50 and he will be 50 in the fall.

My advice....go into some sort of business for your self. Whether you are cleaning houses, designing web sites, doing some sort of service business...where YOU are the boss.

Think way "OUT OF THE BOX". As a loved one of an inmate....we have come up with the most creative ways to "get by...communicate...and survive" this roller coaster ride. I have decided that Paul and I owning a business is the ONLY way that he CAN work, with out the ridicule of society affecting BOTH of us!!

I have had this conversation so many times....

If I charge up $10,000 or $50,000 worth of debt and file for bankruptcy, it's "off" my credit in 7 years. IN essence, I STOLE that money, spent it on stuff that I could not afford.

Why do inmate records follow them for LIFE. This is BULLSHIT! We need to change this!!! Seven or even TEN years later...a felon's record should be closed. If he/she has not committed a crime in that time, it should be dropped "off the record".

Educate yourself about legislation...and VOTE, this is our only true voice.

As far as a "job", be creative...find something that YOU can do, without having to work FOR someone else.

What about being a personal trainer? Or some kind of fitness instructor?

A felon cannot get a license for any service related job, like personal trainer in Arizona. My husband has found construction and landscaping are his best bet but its hard work and not suitable for everyone.

Here's one. And I'm in Arizona. Some delivery services such as for auto parts hire subcontractors. You need your own vehicle and insurance but they pay you better for that. I know a friend of mine did that and worked with ex felons.

Some companies will work with a personal trainer as a subcontractor. He would probably have to do personal training at a smaller gym or even on the side to avoid the larger clubs that will probably have to background check.

Check into the az licensing procedures to be sure you have accurate information?

A highschool classmate of mine is a felon and he works as a personal trainer in Glendale.
I agree that finding something you can do on your own is usually a better option since there is little chance of advancement, etc.

Obviously anyone can go to school for most any occupation as long as you can pay for it. And then if you can work independantly of for someone who does not require a state license you would be able to do it. But in the state of Arizona you cannot get a licensure if you have a felony unless your felony record can be sealed.

That is not completely true. ..

"Certain types of arrests or subsequent criminal convictions can affect a person's ability to obtain or keep virtually every professional license that is regulated by the state. Some professions require that the crime be related to the duties of the profession before the license will be affected; others will be affected based solely upon arrest or conviction. "

"Most state and federal licensing laws require either arrest, conviction, commission of a felony or misdemeanor involving moral turpitude, or that the conduct be substantially related to the individual's professional duties before it may affect the professional's license. "

Just speaking from my own personal experience that however does not make me an expert in anything. Things I know to be true. . you cannot be a licensed massage therapist or work in any school with a felony record that has not been sealed.

If you are a felon due to DUI you will probably not be able to get most driving jobs. They usually require a 5 year driving history from the DMV. I know my husband did. Just a comment.
