Discover if You Qualify for Expungement
Did you know that your arrest will show up on your criminal record even if you were not convicted? If a landlord, banker, or employer sees that you have been arrested, their final decision may be swayed. The good news is that you may be eligible to file for expungement to get your charges removed from your record.
Unfortunately, those convicted of crimes in Florida cannot have their record expunged. You can only qualify for expungement if your charges were dropped, the case was dismissed, you were found not guilty, or the case failed to be filed correctly. However, if you were convicted for the offense, you may be eligible to have your record sealed.
Crimes That Cannot Be Expunged
There are certain crimes that cannot be expunged in Florida, including:
- Sexual violations
- Domestic violence
- Child abuse
- Home invasion robbery
- Drug trafficking
- Illegal use of explosives
How to File for Expungement
To file for expungement in Florida, you must first obtain a Certificate of Eligibility. This process involves submitting an application to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.
Along with the application, you will need to include:
- A certified disposition for each criminal charge listed on the application
- A completed fingerprint form/card
- A $75 payment for the processing fee
