How Much Does Record Sealing or Record Expungement Cost?
Our legal fee to seal or expunge your arrest record is $499.00. That is a flat fee. We do not charge by the hour. There are also state fees and court costs that must be paid. The State fee is fixed at $75.00 and it is paid to the Florida Dept. of Law Enforcement (FDLE) to process your application and issue the required certificate of eligibility that we must file with the court. There are also court costs paid to the clerk of court. Court costs are different in every county and range from $50.00 to $100.00 depending on the county your case is in. We will not know the exact court costs until after we file your final documents and receive the bill from the clerk of court.
Every case is billed at $624.00 initially. That is for our fee of $499.00, the FDLE fee of $75.00, and the lower end of the court costs of $50.00. If the court costs end up being slightly higher at the end of the case, we will advise you of what the clerk has charged.
NEW!!! We know the economy has hurt everyone's finances. To make it easier for you, we have introduced a new payment plan. with the new payment plan, you now have the option to pay in 3 easy, interest free payments of only $208.00.
Feel confident that your case will be handled exclusively by an experienced sealing and expungement attorney and not some paralegal or secretary.
Cases outside of Miami Dade or Broward Counties may require an additional $150.00 appearance fee and therefore the cost may be slightly higher if the court in the county your case is in requires an in-person appearance by an attorney at the final hearing. Most cases do not require an in-person appearance by an attorney at the final hearing as most judges allow us to appear telephonically if required. A mandatory in-person appearance by an attorney is very rare, but we want to tell you about this possibility up front so that there are no surprises.
Get your life back and secure your future! When all is said and done, sealing or expunging your criminal record is one of the best investments you can make in your future. All those years of school and job training may not get you the job you want if you have an arrest record holding you back.
