Since the DV charge is an enumerated offense you cannot get it sealed even though adjudication was withheld. I would suggest contacting an attorney to see if you could potentially withdraw your initial plea.
A conviction for a DUI may have immigration consequences. It is important that you hire a good criminal attorney and also consult and immigration attorney to determine if he could be subject to deportation.
A "Withhold" is a special sentence in which the judge orders probation but does not formally convict the defendant. Florida Statute §948.01 vests Florida judges with the authority to withhold adjudication for defendants charged with minor offense who are not likely to engage in criminal conduct again..

Just because you are arrested for a crime does not mean that the state will proceed against you on thoe charges, Often times a god attorney will get to the prosecutor before they file and provide them...
You need to look at your PTI contract to determine if it is a condition. Even if it is not a condition they can still drug test you on PTI. If your PTI is supervised by the DOC it is likely that they will test you.
I agree with the previous attorney. A residential program at 14 unless the child has severe drug or mental health issues may not be beneficial. I would recommend seeking individual counseling. A counselor could refer you to a program.
I would suggest consulting with an attorney and providing them with a copy of the plea agreement to review. Often in federal pleas you waive the right to appeal any issues including restitution. An experienced federal criminal defense attorney should be able to assist you with this.
As long as you were not convicted of the charge and you have no prior convictions in this state or in any other state, you are eligible to seal the trespass case. Once your record is sealed all of your information will be removed from public record and you can legally deny the incident occurred.
