HOW CAN A RECORDS SEAL AND EXPUNGE LAWYER HELP?

Generally, Florida law states that for certain qualifying offenses, an individual may be eligible to have their records sealed or expunged. The law also provides that an individual's criminal record be free of any prior convictions in order to be eligible. An individual can only take advantage of sealing or expunging their record one time only.

What is the Difference between Sealing and Expunging?

When a record is Sealed, the general public will not be able to access any information. There are, however, specific exceptions to this general rule. There are certain entities that can still access the sealed record They are as follows:

  1. If you are seeking employment with a criminal justice agency.
  2. If you are the subject of future criminal prosecution.
  3. If you are seeking to be licensed by the Florida Bar to practice law in the State of Florida.
  4. If you are seeking employment, to be licensed or contract with the Department of Children and Families, Agency for Health Care Administration, Agency for Persons with Disabilities, Department of Juvenile Justice.
  5. If you are seeking to be employed or licensed by the Department of Education, certain types of public schools, private schools or child care facilities.
  6. If you are seeking employment or access to one of Florida's seaports.
  7. If you are seeking to purchase a firearm.

When a record is Expunged, the above entities will not have access to the actual record. They will, however, be informed that the record has been expunged but will be denied access.

For both sealing and expunging, if you are not dealing with any of the above the entities or scenarios, you may lawfully deny or fail to acknowledge the events covered by the sealed or expunged. In other words, it's as if your record is returned to the way it was before the case ever occurred.
