Do I correctly assume that you do know the person who used your last name? It's hard to guess what sort of ID that the bondsman required; probably not a good idea to ask unless you want your bond to be cancelled.

If he was adjudicated guilty for that charge or has ever been adjudicated guilty of any criminal offense including a criminal traffic offense, he is ineligible for a sealing. He is completely ineligible for expungement because he "got a felony."

If he previously sealed or expunged a file anywhere he is ineligible.

He must have completed any probation.

Otherwise, it appears likely he can get it sealed for that charge.

This applies to cases in Florida only

As long as you're not practicing medicine, treating patients or holding yourself out as a licensed doctor, I think you're OK. I have a Halloween costume with a white lab coat that says, Dr. Ben Dover and I wear scrubs underneath.

The decision to have her leave is not yours to make. It would be the landlords decision. If the tenant is paying rent timely and otherwise following the landlords rules I assume that the landlord is okay with the other tenant staying.

You may have to look at seeking to move and get released from the lease.

Good luck.

Call the police department were the forgery occurred. If that does not work, you can also contact the State attorney's office to try to get them to file charges. It might not be that strong a case since it was your wife though.
