First, Getting Your Record Expunged in Florida; Eligibility
It must be determined if the person seeking to have a criminal record expunged is eligible. Florida law has specific requirements that must be met before a person can petition the court to expunge (or seal) a record. Read the steps below and see if you qualify.
STARTING THE CRIMINAL RECORD EXPUNGEMENT
|STEP ONE||Determine what type of expungement (expunge record) or sealing (seal record) you really need.
|STEP TWO||The next thing needed to be done is to ask yourself these questions:
If you answered "no" to each of those questions you're in good shape. If you are not sure, call us (407) 841-5555. We may be able to help you answer those questions.
|STEP THREE||Go to the Florida Expungement Forms Packet page and submit the information requested. Be specific and do not guess (leave blank if you don't know). This will complete the information we require to begin the process of sealing or expunging your Florida criminal record. If you have questions please call (407) 841-5555. We can take the required information over the phone.|
|STEP FOUR||How Much An Expungement or Sealing Costs: If you decide to do this on your own our fee to prepare the forms is $150.00. If you decide to hire us the total out of pocket cost to you runs two payments of $300 and about $150 in costs. The payments are spread out over the 6-8 months it takes to complete the process.
