Can a Convicted Felon Get a Passport in Florida?

Everyone knows that conviction of a felony carries with it direct and indirect consequences. One of these consequences is having your passport application denied or your existing passport canceled. However, it’s important to know that an individual who was convicted of an offense is not automatically disqualified from getting a passport. If you’re currently charged with a drug or other criminal offense, contact a drug defense attorney in West Palm Beach to know if there’s anything you can do to get a passport.


Reasons for Passport Denial

Commission Of International Drug Trafficking

Your passport is a type of international identification that allows you to travel from and to the United States. However, the right of entry depends on the country you’re planning to visit. They will be the ones to judge whether you will be granted entry or not.

As for this country, the law only precludes felons who committed international drug trafficking from applying for a passport. Hence, if you happen to cross an international border while trafficking drugs, you will be disqualified from applying for a passport - this is especially true when you get convicted.

Other Reasons

There are also instances when an individual’s passport gets denied despite not being convicted of any felony. The State Department can deny your passport application or revoke the same if there is a parole order, probation order, or court order providing for such limitation.

Additionally, if you owe $5,000 or more in child support or loan, you can also be disqualified from obtaining a passport.

Better call Saul? More like, BETTER CALL OLSON!

“David W. Olson is the best lawyer I have come across. He truly will sit and listen to your story and no matter what he will fight for your rights. He is very compassionate, and understanding. He will work with you and does his job with a good heart. Mr. Olson truly has saved my life and gave me a second chance. You wont go wrong with hiring David Olson as your attorney. I highly recommend him and I am proud to have chosen him as my attorney.”


Found the Best!

“David Olson has represented me on two occasions. I have since referred two of my friends and my nephew to him, and they have all told me they’ll always be grateful for that. Mr. Olson somehow had the charges dropped in both of my cases (actually, I do know how, because he and his staff answered all my questions and explained in detail things that I never would have thought of).”


Compassionate Attorney

"My husband and I hired Mr. Olson to represent our son a Florida gun shot victim. We are New Jersey residents. From day one we felt comfortable with Mr. Olson and found him to be easy to talk to and a very good listener. This was important to us after our horrible experience with another attorney who was more concerned with hearing himself speak than our wishes."


Personable and Highly Intelligent!

“I saw David today to discuss some possible outcomes and possibilities of a probable future case. I did not know if I was going to be charged at all but I wanted to speak to someone to get a better idea of what I was looking at and what my options were. As soon as I shook his hand I felt very comfortable and respected. I laid it all out for him and asked him every last question I had, all of which were answered respectfully and intelligently.”


The Best of the Best

"I have known David Olson for over 20 yrs. now and have had my rough times in my past and unfortunately I ended up in trouble with the law and really needed help from a real lawyer. I needed someone to listen to my side of the story and really fight my cases in court for me and get the BEST results for my cases. A very close friend said the man for the job is David W Olson; So I contacted him & he came to me the very next day to hear me out and I knew he was the lawyer that would do the best for me and he did.”

Hearty Recommendation

"I hired Mr. Olson from recommendation by family member. He was immediately behind my situation and put me completely at ease. There were no false promises, very upfront as far as expectations and outcomes.

His assistant, Jessica was a joy to work with as well. They came to my house, interviewed witnesses, went above and beyond and always respond to my calls. I totally endorse this attorney."
