Expunging a Criminal Record in Marion County

Ocala Criminal Defense Attorney

If you or a loved one has been involved in a criminal offense, one of the most debilitating long term effects to your future opportunities can be your criminal record. Having a black mark on your record can negatively affect your ability to get a steady job, pursue a higher education or even obtain a loan to purchase a home.

The good news is that there may be a legal path available to you to seek the sealing of your criminal records to the public. Since a criminal record can have such far-ranging impacts, it may be to your benefit to work with an attorney and expunge your records. By clearing your criminal past, you can begin working toward a brighter future.

What is an expungement?

An expungement can be defined as a process whereby a criminal offense is legally erased from your record, assuming you were not convicted. When your records are expunged, you can legally deny that you were convicted. Through an expungement, your record will no longer be visible to prospective employers, schools or banks, opening up a myriad of possibilities that could have previously been closed to you.

Only certain law enforcement and governmental agencies as designated by law will now have access to your record. This process is a fairly straightforward one in Florida, but a consultation is needed with a knowledgeable Ocala criminal attorney to ensure that you are eligible for expungement.
