A felony charge will appear on a person's criminal record and will be visible to potential employers, making it difficult to obtain certain jobs. It can even reduce your earning potential with a company.


Child Custody

A felony charge will negatively impact child custody in a divorce. The court may limit the time the person with the felony charge can spend with the child, or may not allow them to have custody at all. Even a misdemeanor can lead to the loss of custody rights.


Driving Privileges

Depending on the offense, a felony driving offense could result in a loss of driving privileges. If it involved driving under the influence of alcohol or another controlled substance, your license may be revoked, requiring drug education courses to get back your right to drive. A person with a felony driving offense on their record will also be required to carry special insurance.


Ability to Possess Firearms

A felony charge will result in a loss of the right to possess firearms, meaning you will not be issued a license to carry.
