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
After years of trying to protect my assets from creditors, I was shocked to find out that my assets were unprotected in ways I had never considered. Not only had I placed my assets at risk from my mother's creditors, but I had placed my assets at risk from other family members who were intent on manipulation. When my mother died, I discovered that a family member had changed my mother's estate planning documents. Mr. Goldman and his team were able to explain what went wrong and successfully defended my position in court. During the case, I learned that I could have had much better protection from family and creditors, thus avoiding years of litigation and undue familial stress. When it comes to protecting your assets and your family, I would highly recommend hiring Mr. Goldman and his team. Bill H.
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. In addition, Mr. Goldman can help real estate investors structure trusts to protect their assets from creditors. Michael Starling
This office is fantastic. I was faced with a horrible situation and this office helped to put an end to the untenable situation. Ms. Kendal Schoepfer was always available before, during, and after office hours to answer any questions that I had. I highly recommend this law office to all. Tisha Brown
