Expunge a Florida Criminal Record

Florida Criminal Record Expunge Lawyer

Expunging your Florida Criminal Record is very important If you have ever been arrested for a crime in Florida, or you have a Florida criminal record even if the charges were dropped. Your Florida criminal record will follow you to any state that you move to, but you have options. You can get your Florida criminal record sealed or your Florida criminal record expunged.

In order to get you criminal record expunged in Florida, certain requirements must be met:

  1. The Florida criminal case did not result in a criminal conviction. Either the prosecutor never filed the Florida criminal case or the charges were dropped or dismissed.
  2. If the Florida criminal conviction was withheld or you were acquitted, your Florida criminal record must have been sealed for 10 years. If you are trying to get a withheld conviction or acquittal expunged, you need to seal the Florida criminal record first, and then have the Florida criminal record expunged.
  3. You have never been been convicted of a criminal offense (felony, misdemeanor, or certain driving offenses).
  4. You have never had your criminal record expunged or seal before (in Florida or any other state).
  5. There are certain Florida charges that may not be sealed. For a list of Florida's disqualifying charges, see Florida Statute Section 907.041.
  6. You must go through Florida's Criminal Record Expunging Process.

Client Reviews
After years of trying to protect my assets from creditors, I was shocked to find out that my assets were unprotected in ways I had never considered. Not only had I placed my assets at risk from my mother's creditors, but I had placed my assets at risk from other family members who were intent on manipulation. When my mother died, I discovered that a family member had changed my mother's estate planning documents. Mr. Goldman and his team were able to explain what went wrong and successfully defended my position in court. During the case, I learned that I could have had much better protection from family and creditors, thus avoiding years of litigation and undue familial stress. When it comes to protecting your assets and your family, I would highly recommend hiring Mr. Goldman and his team. Bill H.
As a real estate agent, I have been involved with many property transactions where I needed a probate attorney to help facilitate the transaction. I have used the services of Mr. Goldman and his staff over the last several years and continue to use them on a regular basis. His office has been able to navigate the court system and help estates sell their property quickly and efficiently. In addition, Mr. Goldman can help real estate investors structure trusts to protect their assets from creditors. Michael Starling
This office is fantastic. I was faced with a horrible situation and this office helped to put an end to the untenable situation. Ms. Kendal Schoepfer was always available before, during, and after office hours to answer any questions that I had. I highly recommend this law office to all. Tisha Brown
