Sealing and Expunging Criminal Arrest Records Statewide In Florida

Seal or Expunge Law Firm

What is the difference between a record sealing and record expungement?

Both a seal or expungement will remove your arrest record from public view. The difference between record sealing and record expungement is what happens to the arrest record itself.

A sealed record is made non-public; an expunged record is physically destroyed.

difference between a criminal record seal and criminal record expungeThat is essentially the difference between the two. The copy of an expunged Florida arrest record gets physically destroyed while the copy of a sealed Florida arrest record is actually sealed up and made non-public, but a physical copy of the arrest record still remains.

Whether you qualify to seal or expunge your case depends on how the case closed out. If your case was dismissed by the judge, dropped by the state attorney, or never filed by the state attorney then the case can be expunged. If you ended up taking a plea to the case, but received a withhold of adjudication, you MAY BE ELIGIBLE to seal the case. I say "may be eligible" because not all types of charges can be sealed if you take a plea to them.

Charges considered to be "dangerous crimes" cannot be sealed if you take a plea to them. For example:

  1. You were charged with aggravated battery but the charges were dismissed, dropped, or never filed. You can expunge the case.
  2. You were charged with aggravated battery, but you ended up taking a plea and getting a withhold of adjudication. You can't seal or expunge this case.

Helping People Get Their Life Back....

Law firms like this are the future. I hired Seal My Record to expunge an arrest I had in Miami while on vacation. I live in New York. The start process was simple. All I had to do was sign some documents and send them back. They took care of everything and I never had to go to court. They kept me updated on the case as it moved along the system. Could not have a better more professional experience.
