Can I Expunge my Florida Criminal Record?

Expunging Florida Criminal Records

To determine if your Florida criminal record can be expunged, you must answer a series of questions.

  1. Did you plea guilty or no contest to the offense you would like to have expunged?
  2. Were you found guilty or not guilty after a trial?
    • Note: In order to have your record expunged, either (a) the charges were dropped or (b) this offense has been sealed for over 10 years.
  3. Have you been (a) convicted of ANY criminal offense as an adult or (b) adjudicated delinquent as a juvenile?
  4. Have you ever had your criminal record sealed or expunged before in any state?
    • Note: This question does not apply if you had an offense sealed 10 years ago, and you are applying to have that same offense expunged.

If you answered "Yes" to any of the four questions above, you are not eligible to have your record expunged. Remember that answering these questions is merely a starting point and every case is different. In order to determine if your Florida criminal record can be expunged, you should consult with a Jacksonville Record Expunging Attorney. To set up a consultation, call (904) 685-1200.

Client Reviews
"As a real estate agent, I have been involved with many property transactions where I needed a probate attorney to help facilitate the transaction. I have used the services of Mr. Goldman and his staff over the last several years and continue to use them on a regular basis. His office has been able to navigate the court system and help estates sell their property quickly and efficiently..." Michael Starling
"I've had Mr. Goldman do my entire estate planning as well as my gun trust. I highly recommend him and his firm. If you're planning a gun trust, trust no one else Mr. Goldman is one of if not the best versed on this topic." Howard
“Great service is an understatement. We bought several properties that Mr. Goldman handled for his clients. The communication and explanation of everything was terrific. I would definitely recommend him for all of your real estate needs.” Kassandra
“After struggling with 2 probate cases prior to hiring attorney Goldman I was extremely apprehensive during the hiring phase. Not only did Attorney Goldman assure me they could take care of this his office was wonderful. Jennifer was assigned to my case and she was wonderful and were able to guide another probate case I had saving me additional time and frustration. Highly recommend this office.” Debbie
