what should I answer when I find job? because infraction in criminal record. I did tried to find lawyer to clear my case. They said misdemeanor and felony are criminal record, so they can reduce. but infraction is not crime, and can't do any.
I think most attorneys will require more information from you to answer this question. With all due respect, your phrasing of the question is very difficult to understand.
Your question is a very complex one. Under Penal Code Section 16, infractions are crimes under California law. However, whether it is a "crime" in other contexts depends on who's asking the question, i.e., an employer, the government, ICE, etc. Regardless, a recent change in the law now allows you to obtain a "record clearance" under Penal Code 1203.4. I handle those regularly.
You can have the infraction dismissed pursuant to penal code section 1203.4a. Then you can be certain that it is safe to say NO to any question about being convicted of a crime on most job applications. Until you know what the question they ask is, nobody can advise you what the answer is. You can have the infraction dismissed by filling out the forms below and paying a filing fee. Since the forms haven't been updated, you will have to write in the word "infraction" next to where it says felony or misdemeanor. Check the box that says 1203.4a. It will take about a month. The infraction may still show on a background check, but it will say that it has been dismissed and it is legal for you to say that you were never convicted on any job application that doesn't involve state licensing. Here are the forms:
