Hello. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be glad to help you.
Are you online with me?
Welcome to JustAnswer.com
I am sorry to hear about this unfortunate situation.
Unfortunately in the state of Florida, a criminal conviction cannot be sealed or expunged.
yes I'm online
So, the only option is filing a petition for a full pardon with the governor.
is there and think that Ican do
While it would not seal or expunge your criminal conviction, if granted you would be forgiven for the crime and would not suffer any consequences any longer, it would be like if you were never convicted.
Does this make sense?
Would you like me to provide the link to the official website which has the application and other information required for the full pardon?
Do you have any related follow up questions?
ok what do you think my chances are.
Well, the current Florida governor did not grant many pardons.
Previous two governors did grant more pardons.
So, it might be a good idea to wait for a new Governor before proceeding.
yes thank you so much.
Also it is a good idea to hire an experienced pardon law attorney to help you put together all the evidence of your rehabilitation and letters of recommendation from people holding high positions in the community, such as doctors, priests, lawyers, police, etc...
ok I will
