Are you a Mexican citizen vacationing to Florida locations such as Orlando, Fort Lauderdale, or Miami? Did you get arrested or charged with a crime such as theft, trespassing, or some other petty offense? Did you pay a bond or a fine and go back to Mexico thinking it was no big deal? You may be trying to move ahead with a career in Mexico, or ever back here in the United States and are having trouble because a crime you committed is on your record.

Mexicans who get arrested in Florida, Orlando, Miami, Fort Lauderdale and other cities in our State sometimes make a mistake. That mistake, while seemingly small, can impact the rest of your life. One mistake turns into missed opportunities and jobs, lost scholarships, and could ultimately prevent you from becoming a citizen here in the United States if you had a dream of becoming one.

You might be eligible for sealing or expungement of your records if you were not convicted of a crime. You may be eligible to expunge your arrest if the charges were dropped. If the charge was not dropped and you pled no contest or guilty and received a withhold adjudication, you might still be able to seal the record. There are certain charges that are not eligible for sealing, so our attorneys would have to research to determine whether your case can be sealed.

Florida Legislature created the Sealing and Expungement statutes so that people arrested for minor offenses would be able to get a second chance at life by putting their past behind them.

If you are looking at moving forward with your career or education and want help putting your past behind you should explore the option of sealing or expunging your criminal record. The process typically takes between 4 to 6 months and requires a number of items completed in order to process your application to seal and expunge a criminal record. You have to obtain a certified disposition of your criminal record, charging affidavit, and obtain a fingerprint card so that an application for eligibility can be filled out and submitted to Florida Department of Law Enforcement to determine if you are eligible to seal and expunge your record.

If you were in Florida on vacation from Mexico and got arrested for theft, trespassing, battery, or any other felony or misdemeanor where the charge was dropped or you were not convicted, you should consider the possibility of sealing and expunging your criminal record. If you need any assistance along the process, please feel free to give us a call or email us. We handle sealing and expungement cases for Mexicans that have been arrested in Orlando, Daytona Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Miami, Tampa, and throughout the rest of the state of Florida.
