I am a felon due to child support, before anyone judges I am completely current and have been from yrs, conviction is over 10 yrs old. I'm needing a decent paying job but not sure who all hires felons. Any answers are appreciated.

most employers are willing to consider the conviction, how old it is, what it was for, etc. I'm not sure of specific employers who hire felons, but I would suggest you just apply everywhere, be honest, and make a note on the application about what your conviction was and that it's old and you are current. You might also look into getting it amended to a misdemeanor or expunged it has been so long. Then it wouldn't be a problem. I'm not sure if that's possible with a felony, but it wouldn't hurt to talk to an attorney and ask! Consultations are usually free!

So nice to see a respectful and helpful response to a legitimate question!

Also another thing would be to simply not fill it in when they ask if you were ever convicted of a felony. If you don't answer, you are not lying and if they bring it up in the interview then you have a chance to explain your situation face to face with the employer. A face is a lot harder to say no to than a piece of paper.

Ok, I understand, no one worth a crap should have their name posted on here unless they're a pos like Matt browning. Like someone else said on here though, just leave your criminal background blank and if you get an interview, explain how it's a nonviolent offense and not drug related. Most likely they will look past child support issues
Yeah its True

Most Felons become Politicians or Preachers. I hope this helps.

Leaving the felony part blank may also NOT get you an interview. ALWAYS ALWAYS be 100% truthful.
