How Can You Get a Criminal Record Expunged in Florida?

In Florida you can petition the court for expungement of criminal records, or deleting all records relating to your arrest and criminal charges, provided the following criteria are met:

  • You must not be on probation or in any court-ordered supervisory program
  • You must have not been convicted of a misdemeanor or felony
  • You have never applied for expungement before
  • You also be able to pursue expungement if the State brought charges, but did not prosecute or if you were wrongfully arrested.

Sealing Records in Florida

Many of the same guidelines apply when you seal criminal records. The main difference is that the records are sealed by the court clerk, and cannot be viewed by the public. The police records and court records are not physically destroyed, as they would be in expungement, and are accessible by court order.

If you were arrested on a criminal charge and successfully completed a court-ordered diversion program, those records would qualify for sealing.

Certain crimes such as acts of terrorism, manslaughter, or kidnapping do not qualify for sealing or expungement.

Sealing and expungement are fairly lengthy, complicated processes. We advise you to consult with an experienced Clearwater expungement lawyer who handles sealing and expungement of criminal records regularly.
