Expungement Attorney in LaBelle, Florida and Hendry County
Types of Records Eligible for Expungement in Florida
Not all criminal records are eligible for expungement in Florida. In fact, if you have been convicted of a crime in Florida or in any state, at any time, you will be ineligible for expungement. You may also only utilize expungement proceedings once in your lifetime. If you have previously expunged a record, you will be ineligible for a new expungement.
You may be able to clear your record in Hendry County in the following ways:
- If you were arrested but the charges were dismissed before trial, you may be eligible for expungement. This will result in the record being destroyed.
- If you were arrested but the court withheld adjudication of your arrest or you were acquitted at trial, you may be eligible for record sealing. This only applies to certain offenses and will involve your record being sealed from the public.
Determining eligibility and filing a petition for expungement can be complex. One wrong move could adversely affect your chance to clear your record. Instead of worrying about your record, involve a Hendry County expungement lawyer who can handle everything with the professionalism and attention to detail that is required to give you the best chance at having your record cleared or sealed.
