What does an expungement or sealing accomplish?
Once a record has been sealed/expunged it is no longer considered a public record under Florida law and will not show up on a official background check.  The law allows you to deny that the arrest ever occurred (There are several exceptions to the "denial rule."). The information regarding your arrest and court case is removed from the clerk’s computer database. Arrest records and police information are also removed upon the signed court order.

What is the difference between an expunction and a sealing?
The difference is found in the type of case for which a person seeks relief.  A case that was dropped or dismissed would fall under the expunction statute.  A case that had a determination of guilt would fall under the sealing statute.  This refers to most ‘No Contest’ plea offers where the adjudication of guilt is withheld. As far as the petitioner is concerned the relief will be the same for all practicable purposes.

Can I expunge an arrest that occurred in another state?
Yes, however an arrest in another state would fall under that state's laws.  If they allow a criminal record to be expunged you would have to hire an attorney in that state to file for it pursuant to that state's procedure.

What is the basis for your legal fee?
We don't ask for a dime until we check to see if you are eligible.  Our firm has been doing this for over 10 years.  Unlike others we concentrate our entire practice on this area of the law. The standard fee from our office is $400 (which includes the upfront FDLE fee).

Can I be eligible and still have my Florida expunction/seal request denied?
Yes.  This request to seal or expunge your record is a discretionary action by the court, meaning that the court can deny your petition for any reason.  Well, that is what the statute says - however, Florida case law is fairly clear that there needs to be a legitimate reason for denying a petition to seal or expunge that meets all the criteria required by law (this is what we screen our clients for before they hire us).  So the real answer is that there has to be a good reason for the court to deny your request.  Historically, we have had very few petitions denied over the years.
