Sealing a Record in Florida
Sealing your record can be very complicated. If you have any mistakes made on your application, you may need to start over completely. It would be in your best interest to obtain the services of an experienced lawyer to assist you in this matter. Any small mistake could delay the entire process.
Not all offenses can be sealed. Examples of a few that cannot include arson, robbery, child abuse, kidnapping, carjacking, homicide, and domestic violence.
One may wonder why they should even bother having their record sealed. When a person has their record sealed, it can not be accessed by normal means. If you have a background check done, such as for a future employer, they will not be able to see this conviction on your record. You will be able to deny that this was even on your record in a legal sense. The record of this crime happening will be on your record still, but having it sealed will make it harder for some entities to find out about it. The only way for many to find out about the crime is to have your records unsealed. The only way to have this done is to have a court order to do so.
It can take some time to have your record sealed. On average, it may take six months just to process an application for a certificate of eligibility. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement handles the sealing of records.
