Eligibility

Although many states do not allow record sealing or record expungement, the State of Florida does. This can give you a fresh start for your future. Once your criminal record is sealed or expunged, you will feel more comfortable applying for jobs, loans and obtaining housing.

Process

Many applications are handled and approved without a hearing. However there are a small number of counties that demand a hearing on every case. Once approved, the Judge issues an Order sealing or expunging your record. The Clerk's office then forwards the Order to the appropriate agencies to seal or expunge your record. Costs charged by the Clerk's vary from County to County, 

Cost

Our legal fees for sealing or expunging your criminal history record are $495 plus the costs we must pay out to the various agencies and clerk's offices to complete the process. Costs generally range from $167 to $228 depending on the charges of the Clerk of Court in the County that you were arrested in. We also offer a payment plan if you wish to pay the fees and costs over time.

 

Results

The legal record of your criminal history is effectively erased or destroyed, so your criminal record is not publicly known. (Certain government agencies may still have access to sealed criminal records.) Your record will not come up during a routine criminal background check by a prospective employer, landlord, credit card company or insurance agent, with a few exceptions. You can answer "no" to any application that asks if you have ever been arrested or convicted of a crime, including applications for employment, apartments, loans or insurance.
