Seal or Expunge a Criminal Record

If you have ever been arrested for a crime in Florida, you have a Florida criminal record. Even if the criminal charges were dropped, you still have a Florida criminal background. A Florida criminal background can follow you forever, but there is a solution to this problem. Under Florida law, you may be able to have your Florida criminal record sealed or your Florida criminal record expunged.

By having your Florida criminal background sealed or expunged, your Florida criminal background is not open to the public. Sealing or Expunging your Florida criminal record prevents most potential employers from viewing your Florida criminal background. Under Florida Statute 943.045, when you seal your Florida criminal history record, the Florida criminal record is preserved, but it is inaccessible to the public. Once you seal your Florida criminal background, only people that have a legal right to your Florida record can access it. When you expunge your Florida criminal history record, the Florida court orders the destruction of your Florida criminal record. Only the Florida Department of Law Enforcement keeps a copy of your Florida criminal record when it is expunged.
