Expungement & Record Sealing in Florida
Expungement means physically destroying a criminal record, although the Department of Law Enforcement is the only entity that has a confidential copy. By contrast, sealing means the general public cannot access the criminal record – only certain government agencies.
Expungement is available to individuals who were arrested but never charged or had their charges dismissed. Record sealing is available for those who were not convicted or had their adjudication of guilt withheld.
However, certain felonies are ineligible for expungement, such as murder, manslaughter, sexual misconduct, aggravated assault and battery, robbery, drug trafficking, child abuse, and domestic violence involving injury.
The process starts by filing an application with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to determine eligibility. The application must include a certified copy of your case’s disposition and your fingerprints.
If the agency determines you are eligible, you must file a petition with the court that originally handled your case. If the court grants your petition, you will not have to disclose your criminal charge when asked.
