Collateral Consequences of Conviction

If you are convicted of a crime, there may be temporary or permanent consequences of that conviction apart from the sentence imposed by a court. A searchable collection of state and federal laws regarding collateral consequences and laws that may afford relief from a collateral consequence is available here. This page is maintained in partnership with the Collateral Consequences Resource Center.

If you would like information or assistance about obtaining relief from collateral consequences, a collection of resources by county is maintained by Vermont Law School and is available here.

Assistance is also available from the following agencies and non-profit organizations:

  • Vermont Legal Aid, Inc.: 800-889-2047
  • Prisoners’ Rights Office: 802-828-3194
  • United Way: 2-1-1
