Florida Expungements Can Clear Your Record
In today’s job market, you need every edge you can get. Having a criminal record due to something that happened in the past, even if it does not reflect what your life is like today, can mean opportunities denied.
Some convictions and even arrest records can be sealed or expunged. Here at the Leskovich Law Group in Punta Gorda, Florida, our lawyers can help you look into all of your options. With more than 50 years of combined experience, we can help you navigate the Florida expungement process.
What It Means To Expunge Your Criminal Record
Expunging your record means that it will not be visible to anyone who runs a background check, like a potential employer or a landlord. If your prospective employer asks you if you have been arrested or convicted, you can honestly say “no.”
Expungement is typically used for relatively minor offenses, such as drug possession charges and theft. DUI and felony convictions cannot be expunged. Even if you were found guilty, expungement is often possible. If you were charged but then the charges were dropped, dismissed or never filed, you may also be able to have that record sealed, no matter what the charges were for.
