Expungement Attorneys in Miami

Helping You Get a Blank Slate & Fresh Start

If you have been tried, arrested, or convicted of a criminal offense in the state of Florida, you will have a criminal record which could cause long-lasting and far-reaching consequences in your life. It will present you with numerous barriers, including when you try to find a job, find housing, or even apply for certain loans. Licensed professionals risk losing their license, thereby jeopardizing their entire livelihood. Expunging or sealing your criminal record allows you to have peace of mind knowing that your criminal history will not show up on a background check or cause you problems in the future.

Criminal records can be expunged or sealed under certain conditions, thanks to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement Act. By sealing your criminal record, you are able to honestly state on employment applications that your record is clean. However, you should know that your sealed record could still be used against you in the event that you become involved in a criminal case as a defendant. Fortunately, expunging records is legal in the state of Florida. In expunging your criminal record, it will be destroyed physically and it’ll be treated as if it never even existed.

To learn more about expunging your criminal record or how our Miami expungement attorneys can help you, call Jeffrey S. Weiner, P.A. today at (305) 670-9919 or contact us online.

Criminal Records Eligible to Be Sealed

If you were arrested for a criminal offense but no charging document, information, or indictment was filed, these are sealable records. Once you’ve obtained a certificate of eligibility, any court can order an agency to expunge your record. If you were charged, indicted, or had documents filed, but the case was nolle prossed or dismissed, these records are also sealable. Nolle prossed means that the case was abandoned by the prosecuting attorney or prosecution. You can seek to expunge your record once it has been sealed for 10 years.

Criminal records that are related to specific types of crimes, such as robbery, human trafficking, kidnapping, domestic violence, and sexual misconduct are unable to be sealed. With the exception of violations of the Florida Communications Fraud Act, most white collar crimes are sealable. Unfortunately, if you have been found guilty of a previous offense, subsequent records are unable to be sealed.

Criminal Records Eligible to Be Expunged

A non-judicial record of a mistaken or illegal arrest is expungable. Charges that are dismissed prior to trial due to nolle prosequi or no information are able to be immediately expunged, so long as all the other charges are disposed of. In most other cases, records are not able to be expunged until they have first been sealed for 10 years.
