CERTIFICATE ON CRIMINAL RECORD

Reading time: 3 min.

A certificate of no criminal record is a document that certifies that a person has not been punished by a legal sentence, and also does not appear in the register of the Ministry of Internal Affairs. Such a certificate is needed in many situations - starting with employment for a responsible job and ending with a change of surname in some cases. Let's consider all these options in detail.

Change of documents: when the help is needed

In most situations, when the person changes his surname, the certificate of criminal record is not required for this, since the ground for such changes is a marriage certificate or its dissolution. However, there are other situations.

For example, a figure in the field of culture and arts decides to turn his own pseudonym, by which he became recognizable, into a surname.

Or - a person decided to take the last name of one of his influential ancestors in order to emphasize family ties. In this case, a certificate on criminal record must be added to the documents submitted to the DRATS authorities. This is completely logical and natural, as it is important for the state to understand that the citizen is not trying to hide any crimes or being wanted by his actions.

Employment and criminal record certificate

Usually, the criminal record certificate is required for responsible government positions, as well as for jobs related to responsibility for the life and health of other people or the safety of the enterprise. The certificate shows whether a person has been held criminally or administratively liable. If such facts took place, the corresponding articles are indicated.

Far from always, when getting a job, a person has to show such a certificate. For most professions, it is not included in the list of mandatory documents. But there are also those where this certificate is needed. For example, we are talking about vacancies:

  • in educational institutions;
  • in public services;
  • in the positions of educators, sports instructors, coaches;
  • in the positions of accountants, credit and insurance brokers.

In such cases, a criminal record certificate indicates the reliability of a candidate who intends to obtain a particular position.

When else may such a certificate be needed?

In addition to the listed cases, a certificate is required for obtaining citizenship, adopting a child, obtaining a work visa to other countries, and obtaining a loan for a large amount.

If we talk about the mechanism of obtaining such a certificate, it is issued by the Ministry of Internal Affairs. In the event that you want to simplify this process for yourself and not have to contact government institutions one more time, you can delegate this issue to professional lawyers.
