Attorney for Expunging Criminal Records
Why Expunge Your Criminal Record?
When a person has a criminal record, it can affect your life in many ways. Many employment opportunities will be denied you, such as teaching positions, child care provider, or peace officer. College grants and acceptance may be affected as well as the ability to obtain loans. If you were convicted of a sexual offense, your ability to live in certain areas could be restricted. And if you are a legal immigrant, a crime on your record could result in loss of immigration status. Because arrests and convictions can remain on public record for some time and negatively impact your future, many people seek to have these records expunged.
Expungment is the legal process of having any convictions or arrests removed from public records so that they no longer appear. Expungment must be petitioned for and approved by the Florida courts. If approved, they will no longer be available on general data bases, however law enforcement will still have access to someone's criminal history.
