Can I Get A Job With A Criminal Record?

As you may have found out, it is not easy to get a job with a criminal record. Even if your charges were dropped or dismissed the arrest still many times will show up.

To have the best shot at that new job you need to get that criminal arrest off your record. There are a few ways to do that, and our Orlando criminal record expungement lawyers will guide you through the process.

You Have an Arrest Record Even if the Charges Against You Were Dismissed

One reason criminal record expungement is so important is that, under Florida law, your arrest record remains publicly accessible even if the charges were dismissed or adjudication was withheld.

You must actively apply for expungement of the arrest, and The Law Office of Corey I. Cohen & Associates can help you do that, for a very reasonable fee.

The Difference Between Sealing and Expunging a Criminal Arrest Record

If you were arrested and the charges were dropped before trial, you may be eligible to have your entire case expunged, which means that most employers will never know you were even arrested for a criminal offense.

On the other hand if you took a plea or were found guilty of a criminal offense, you may still be eligible to have the charges sealed, which means that most employers will never know about the charges or the arrest and people cannot see your charges without a court order.

When thinking about your future, it is important to have the best chances of success and this is one way to improve those chances.
