Florida Expungement Lawyer
What is Expungement?
Expungement is the process of having any convictions or arrests removed
from public records so that they no longer appear. An expungement of conviction
does not, however, remove them from law enforcement data bases. Law enforcement
will still have access to someone’s criminal history, even after
an expungement. A knowledgeable Florida expungement attorney will be able
to provide you with the legal assistance to attempt to have an arrest
or conviction expunged if your case meets certain legal standards. If
the person requesting expungement has met all of their probation criteria,
has obeyed all court orders and has no subsequent criminal offenses, it
may be possible to get the records expunged.
Why get your charges expunged? A criminal record negatively affects your
future employment, educational possibilities, housing options, immigration
status and the ability to obtain loans.
Expungement must be petitioned for and approved by the Florida courts.
Because arrests and convictions can remain on public record and negatively
impact your future, many people seek to have these records expunged.
Many people do not realize how a criminal record can affect their life.
There are certain jobs that you cannot qualify for if you have a criminal
record, such as police officer, teacher, child care provider, and others.
Your ability to get housing may be affected by a landlord checking credit
and seeing you have a record. And if you are an immigrant, any past convictions
on your record can come up at any time, even during a police traffic stop.
Your immigration status can be affected, possibly resulting in deportation.
Why risk these ill effects when these records can possibly be expunged?
