Expungement in Florida

Florida allows you to have your records either sealed (hidden from public view) or expunged (completely destroyed) if you have never been found guilty (adjudicated guilty) of a criminal offense. It is important to note that under Florida law you can be convicted of a criminal offense, but have a determination of guilt withheld (adjudication withheld). If adjudication was withheld you may be eligible to have your record sealed. If you have never been adjudicated guilty of any other crime and the record you want removed resulted in adjudication withheld you must first have your record sealed before it can be expunged. The benefit of either expungement or sealing are pretty much the same. With both you no longer are required to admit that you have a criminal record and your record is no longer available to the public.

Requests for sealing and expungement are first filed with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE). The FDLE will determine your eligibility and either grant you a Certificate of Eligibility or deny your request. Once you have been granted a Certificate of Eligibility you will need to petition the court to have your record sealed or expunged.
