If your criminal history is looming over you like a dark cloud, it is important to understand that your past does not have to dictate your future. With the help of a Miami criminal defense lawyer from Seltzer Mayberg, LLC, you may be able to expunge or seal your criminal record and move on with a fresh start. In some cases, having a permanent mark on your criminal record can limit your employment opportunities and educational prospects, prohibit you from acquiring certain professional licenses and even place strain on your personal relationships. For this reason, you should not hesitate to find out if you qualify for expungement. In the state of Florida, you may be able to seal or expunge a criminal offense if:
- You have not obtained a previous expungement or sealing
- You have not been adjudicated guilty of a criminal offense
- You are not under court supervision (probation/house arrest)
- You did not plead guilty to an ineligible offense
If you meet all of these requirements, you may qualify to have your criminal record expunged or sealed; however, it is important to understand that not all criminal offenses are eligible. For this reason, you should not hesitate to discuss the specific nature of your case with a Miami criminal defense attorney at our firm before initiating this process. In doing so, you can ensure that you qualify. Although you may still be eligible to have your criminal record expunged if you were charged with an ineligible offense, but the charges were later dropped, abandoned or dismissed, you would not qualify if you were convicted of, or plead guilty to, any of the following criminal offenses:
Although this is not a complete list of ineligible offenses, it includes some of the most common. If you are interested in finding out if your past offenses qualify for expungement, it is highly recommended that you speak with an attorney from Seltzer Mayberg, LLC.
