West Palm Beach Expungement Lawyer - Call (561) 475-2752
See If You Qualify to Seal Your Criminal Record
Under state law and in certain situations, a person who has previously been arrested for a crime can request an expungement of their criminal record. If the expungement is granted, your arrest and case information will no longer be available to the public. You can even state on employment applications and other documents that you have never been arrested. Expungement essentially "erases" your charges, arrest, and conviction from your criminal record, making it as though it never happened.
Are you considering an expungement? Contact a West Palm Beach criminal defense attorney to have your case evaluated by a knowledgeable legal professional. You can find out if you qualify for record sealing and can get assistance with your expungement application.
The Benefits of Expungement
A criminal record will follow you wherever you go unless it is erased. Record expungement is a legal remedy to give a person relief from a criminal past.
Before a judge will approve a request for criminal record expungement, the case must meet certain criteria, including:
- No additional crimes have been committed since the original arrest
- The arrest did not result in a conviction
- The person requesting the expungement has not previously received one
