If your case is dismissed by the court for lawful self-defense or if the prosecutor drops the charges for this reason, then we can help you apply for a special type of administrative expunction under Section 943.0585(5), Florida Statutes, and Rule 11C-7.006, Florida Administrative Code.
We can help you obtain the “Lawful Self-Defense Certificate of Eligibility” if the appropriate state attorney or statewide prosecutor certifies that the subject acted in lawful self-defense pursuant to the provisions related to justifiable use of force in Chapter 776, Florida Statutes, and the charge(s) were not filed on, or were dismissed by the state attorney or the court.
