Many individuals find they run into restrictions when applying for bank loans, employment, home loans, licenses, and more. Criminal records can be accessed when a background check is done on an individual. Even an arrest where no charges were ever brought will turn up and may result in an application being denied. An experienced expungement lawyer with our firm is skilled in meeting the requirements of expungements and record sealings efficiently. There is a difference between a sealing and an expungement. When a record is sealed the information is retained but access is restricted to a very few agencies. When a record is expunged, the entire record is destroyed and only a few agencies will be informed that there was a record which was expunged.
Expungement is often part of a sentencing agreement or plea agreement for juveniles or first time offenders and requires a formal procedure. Once a record has been expunged or sealed Florida law provides that you can lawfully fail to acknowledge any arrest contained in the expunged record with only a few exceptions and only a judge under certain circumstances can provide your information to an entity. If you have questions regarding expungement or having your record sealed call Taracks Gomez & Rickman. A knowledgeable criminal defense lawyer will review your record with you to determine what can be done in your case.
