More than 80 percent of employers conduct background checks. The internet even makes it possible for friends and neighbors to do a background check on you for just a few dollars. The good news is that many people are eligible to have their Florida record expunged.
We are the nation’s leading criminal record expungement law firm and the only law firm that offers options to clear your record from the places that matter most— leading background check companies. Our competitors only handle the court records. Take the first steps to a better life now by doing our free online evaluation.
Florida statute 943.0585 allows for a person’s arrest record to be expunged, which means it is sealed and destroyed. The government records will never be able to be viewed again.
In order to be eligible you 1) can't be convicted of the crime and it must have been dismissed before trial, 2) the individual has no other convictions, and 3) if the individual has not sealed or expunged any other criminal record.
The typical expungement case in Florida takes about nine to twelve months (Palm Beach and Hillsborough county are currently taking twelve months). The time frame is mostly determined by the FDLE, because it takes the FDLE six months to issue the certificate of eligibility. The courts operate on a first-come, first-served basis, so the sooner you start, the sooner your record is cleared.
Our flat fee includes all costs. We will conduct the research, file the necessary motions, respond to written or oral opposition from the District attorney, and send one of our attorneys to court to argue the case in front of the judge.
In most cases, you will not have to physically appear in court. You can let us handle all the work, while you track the progress of your case online.
We have handled more than 1,000 Florida expungement cases. We have a money-back guarantee on expungement cases. We also have a low-price guarantee. Just show us a competitor’s quote or ad and we will match it.
Our exclusive Expedited Record Clearance Update service allows us to have the leading background check companies reflect changes to your criminal record in less than 14 days, instead of months and even years like our competitors.
