If you have recently received a DUI, you may be worried about the effect of that DUI on your college applications or applications to jobs in the near future. However, school admissions after a DUI might be the least of your concerns in the long run. This is because a DUI can stay on your record indefinitely and could possibly affect your job applications for the rest of your life.
It is possible to get your Miami DUI expunged, or taken off of your record. You should consult a criminal defense attorney about your options.
Getting Your Record Expunged
You can have the DUI expunged from your record by going to your local Department of Motor Vehicles. The system can be complicated, however, so you may need to hire an attorney to help you with this process.
If you do not want to go through the expunging process, you can always just be patient.
True, this is not the same as getting rid of the DUI completely, but in some cases it is good enough. For example, if you are not going into the military or a government position, then a DUI may not be so important to your prospective employer.
Employers often only ask for a three-year driving record. If you have received a DUI and would like to fight it or have it expunged from your records, a criminal defense attorney might be able to help in Miami. With the assistance of an attorney who is familiar with DUI law you may be able to move on from this mistake and get on with your life.
