Are there any advantages for hiring a lawyer to file an expungement in the state of Florida when I can file it on my own?

My spouse was arrested on a ridiculous charge of domestic violence & battery during our summer vacation. The case never saw court & was dropped by the state attorney.

You should be asking this of a Florida attorney or, at least, someone licensed to practice in Florida. This would be handled in Oregon and Oregon's laws wouldn't apply.

Yes. Bluntly, there's a greater chance that it'll be done wrong if you try to do it yourself without a lawyer. But you need to ask an attorney who practices in Florida for details.
