Do you have conviction that resulted in the loss of your civil rights in Florida? Do you want to be able to exercise these civil rights again? We are civil rights restoration specialists, and we can help you.

In Florida, a convicted felon cannot vote, serve on jury, or hold public office until their civil rights have been restored. Losing these rights can prevent you from fully participating in all that our society has to offer. Luckily, the law in Florida allows you to apply to have these rights restored, and we want to use our knowledge and skills to help you do that.

Florida Law and Process for Applying for Restoration of Civil Rights

In Florida you must apply for your restoration of civil rights with the Office of Executive Clemency, otherwise know as the Clemency Board. The Governor and members of the Cabinet make up the Clemency Board. When considering whether or not to restore civil rights they use the Rules of Executive Clemency to guide their decision-making.

Restoration of civil rights applications are separated into two groups: those that are decided without a hearing per Rule 9.A. and those that must be decided with a hearing per Rule 10.A. In order to be eligible to apply under either rule you must make sure that all your restitution and fines are paid, and you must not have any pending criminal charges or outstanding detainers or warrants.

Rule 9.A. sets out further requirements to qualify for restoration of your civil rights without a hearing. They are as follows:

  • 5 years must have passed since the completion of all sentences imposed and all conditions of supervision have expired or been completed
  • During these 5 years you must not have committed any crimes and have not been arrested for a misdemeanor or felony
  • You cannot have ever been convicted of any of the crimes considered by the Clemency Board to be more serious, violent and dangerous. A list of these crimes can be found under Rule 9.A.
  • Must be a citizen of the United States
  • If convicted in a court other than a Florida court, you must be a legal resident of Florida.

If you do not qualify to apply for the restoration of your civil rights under Rule 9.A. you may be eligible under Rule 10.A. The requirements for restoration of your civil rights with a hearing per Rule 10.A. are as follows:

  • 7 years must have passed since the completion of all sentences imposed and all conditions of supervision have expired or been completed
  • During these 7 years you must not have any new felony convictions
  • Must be a citizen of the United States
  • If convicted in a court other than a Florida court, you must be a legal resident of Florida.

Rule 10.A. was designed to deal with more serious offenses and that is why it requires a hearing and a more in depth investigation. The hearing is held with an Examiner of the Florida Parole Commission.

The Clemency Board will consider many factors when determining whether to grant your application to restore your civil rights. Some of these factors include, but are not limited to: - Nature and circumstances of the offense - Criminal record including traffic offenses - Employment history - Mental health, drug or alcohol issues - Domestic violence issues - Any letters submitted in support or opposition to your application

If your application to restore your rights is granted without a hearing you will receive a Certificate of Restoration of Civil Rights. If your application is granted with a hearing you will receive a copy an Executive Order signed by the Clemency Board members. If your application is denied you must wait at least 2 years to reapply.

How We Can Help with a Florida Civil Rights Restoration

As soon as you sign up with us, we will start working on your case. We have handled thousands of cases, and we know how to prepare and file these types of applications as quickly as possible. Applications to restore your civil rights in Florida can take several years or longer. It depends on how complex your case is, if a hearing is required, and how many cases the Clemency Board has in line before yours since they take each case as they get them.

We offer this service for a low flat fee that can be broken up into payments for your convenience. We will prepare your application, file it with the Clemency Board and if a hearing is necessary we will send out an attorney to present your case (although there is an additional fee for us to attend a hearing on your behalf).

Because civil rights restorations can take many years to receive an answer, our representation ends when the application is submitted to the board that considers it. If we can, we will still provide support after submission, although this would require a separate agreement and potentially an additional fee.

We are so confident in the level of service we provide for the price we offer a low-price guarantee. Find this service for less and show us the ad or offer and we will gladly match it.
