Sealing Records in Florida

Sealing records does not mean the case record was destroyed. However, it does mean that your criminal record is not available to the general public and will appear to most record requests as though you had no record.

Florida Expungement

Through the expungement of your case, the court records are destroyed and the information about your criminal past is not available to the general public and/or private background checks, and the few governmental agencies that are entitled to access only receive information that a record was expunged, not the details of the record.

A Florida expungement lawyer at our firm can discuss the specifics of your case with you to determine if sealing or expunging is available to clear your record.
