Florida Expungements Attorney
If you have been arrested for a crime in Florida, there will be public records of your arrest, regardless of whether the charges were dropped or not. Even if the charges were dismissed, arrest records can still create problems with your friends and family, potential employers, school admissions offices, loan providers and much more.
In Florida, you may qualify to have your criminal record sealed or expunged under certain circumstances. If your record is sealed, the public (including private employers) cannot view it, but most government agencies will still have access to it. If your criminal record is expunged, not even a government agency can see it without a court order.
There are several types of relief to seal or expunge criminal history in the state of Florida. The options you have will typically depend on your age at the time your case was resolved, how your case was resolved and the type of crime that you were charged with. You can also learn more by reading Florida Statutes §§ 943.0585 and 943.059.
However, not all charges and arrests are eligible for sealing or expungement. If you have recently resolved a criminal case and are interested in sealing or expunging your record, call me today so we can go over your eligibility and options.
