Is your arrest record in Florida blocking your potential? If you have never been convicted of an offense, you may be able to expunge an arrest that resulted in withheld adjudication. Unfortunately, it is impossible to seal or expunge a record in Florida if you have a conviction on your record, regardless of when or where it occurred. We have done thousands of expungements and want to use our experience and knowledge to help you get your Florida criminal record expunged and enable you to begin new life.
Most employers around the country and in Florida do background checks on potential employees. These checks have become something that pretty much anyone can run on people as long as they have internet access and a few dollars. Florida's laws are also extremely lenient in granting the public access to criminal records. However there is hope, Florida law does allow some criminal arrest records to be expunged.
As a nationally recognized expungement firm, we are extremely prepared to help you with your Florida expungement case. The easiest way to determine if you are eligible for an expungement in Florida or perhaps another one of our record clearing services is to take a moment to do this confidential evaluation. It can only take a few moments to change your life.
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 to expunge your records in FL you must meet the following requirements:
If you have a conviction on your record, regardless of where or how long ago it occurred, it is impossible to seal or expunge your Florida record. The typical expungement case in Florida takes about nine to twelve months. Palm Beach county and Hillsborough county are both taking about 12 months. In order to petition the courts, a valid certificate for expunction must be issued and received from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE). If you have never been convicted of an offense, you may be eligible to expunge an arrest that resulted in withheld adjudication. The FDLE has been taking about six months to provide a certificate of eligibility.
So the time it takes to process an expungement is greatly dependent on the time it takes the FDLE to issue the certificate of eligibility. Once we received the certificate from the FDLA, we will immediately filed your case with the court. Once the court receives the petition with the certificate attached, they handle each case as they obtain them, so the amount of time it will take depends on how many cases they got before yours.
We start the whole process for you as soon as we get your case and will continue to get everything processed on our end as quickly as possible. We will do any requisite research, gather needed documents, put together and file the position, counter any opposition from the prosecutor and one of our attorneys will go to a hearing to represent your interests should a hearing be scheduled. Your presence at the hearing will likely not be mandatory. You can check the online case management system if you want to see what is happening with your case at any given time.
