    As a criminal defense attorney in the state of Florida I would approach the following issue in this manner. I would schedule a hearing before the court issuing the order if it were the alleged victim's wish to have resumed contact with the individual charged with domestic violence.

    You have submitted your legal question to attorneys in the practice area of speeding tickets. You should direct your questions to attorneys who handle landlord/tenant matters.

    If you have been "found guilty of an offense that is a felony in another state, territory, or country and which was punishable by imprisonment for a term exceeding 1 year" under Florida Statute 790.23(1)(e) then you are unable to possess a firearm in Florida unless your civil and firearm rights are restored. I would call an attorney in Alabama to check the disposition of the 1998 felony case to see if you were found guilty/convicted of that offense.

    It is state specific. In the State of Florida, you are unable to expunge an aggravated stalking, even if adjudication is withheld. If you are inquiring about another state, you should contact an attorney practicing in that state for advice.

    The attorney representing your boyfriend must file a motion with the court in order to address this issue. Under Florida Criminal Procedure Rule 3.134 an individual not formally charged by the 33rd day should be released unless the State files charges by that day or presents good cause for a 7 day extension. If the State is granted this extension they must file a criminal information by the 40th day or else your boyfriend must be released.

    You should consult with an attorney in the state where you were arrested in order to assess whether the Felony arrest can be sealed. The answer depends on the jurisdiction's expungement/sealing criteria.
