What is a Certificate of Rehabilitation?

A California Certificate of Rehabilitation is a special court order stating that a person has been entirely rehabilitated. (See California Penal Code sections 4852, et. seq.) Once a Certificate of Rehabilitation is granted, all rights are restored and the court order is then sent to the Governor where it serves as an automatic application for a pardon. If you were convicted of a felony in California and served time in prison, you may be eligible for a Certificate of Rehabilitation.

Benefits of a Certificate of Rehabilitation
A Certificate of Rehabilitation:
  • Restores all civil rights (gun rights are only restored if Governor signs pardon),
  • End duty to register under Penal Code section 290 for some sex- offenses,
  • Serves as official proof that you have been rehabilitated, and
  • Ends employment and occupational licensing discrimination.
  • Major Requirements for a Certificate of Rehabilitation

  •  In some (not all) cases, at least 7 years must have passed since you were released from prison.
  • You must have continuously resided in California for the past 5 years.
  • You must have lived a crime-free life since being released from prison.
