Sealing & Expungement
Were you arrested in Florida, but never convicted of the criminal charge or found delinquent of a juvenile offense?
Does your brief encounter with the criminal justice system complicate your efforts to pass background checks and to complete job applications?
Is this your first time seeking to get a bizarre, one-time incident expunged from your record?
If so, there may hope for you. A variety of Florida statutes determine whether a person may successfully seal or expunge their arrest record here in Florida. Morgan Law, P.A. will help you navigate this process, gather the necessary paperwork, and advocate for you at a hearing in front of a judge to seal or expunge your record.
In Florida, a criminal history is created when a person is arrested and fingerprinted and will include the disposition of that arrest, whether it is a conviction, acquittal, dismissal of charges before trial, or some other outcome. That means that although a person is innocent until proven guilty, they acquire a criminal record at the moment of the initial arrest – even if later found not guilty in a trial by jury. Even charges that have been dismissed before trial leave a blemish on the record of the person accused of a crime.
Sealing and expungement help people overcome these problems. Morgan Law, P.A. will work with you to seek the best possible result for you and your family.
