Sealing Your Record

I often get phone calls from people asking me if they can get their criminal record sealed or expunged in Florida because they are having trouble getting a job once their potential employer finds out about their record.  In order for me answer their question, I first have to get some information from them such as whether they were adjudicated guilty of the Florida criminal charge that they are calling about.  If the answer is yes, then they cannot get their Florida criminal record sealed or expunged.  If the answer is no, then I ask them whether they have ever before had a criminal record sealed or expunged.  If the answer is yes, then they cannot get their Florida record sealed or expunged.  If the answer is no, they I ask them whether they currently have a motion to seal or expunge their record pending in any court anywhere.  If the answer is yes, then they cannot get their Florida record sealed or expunged.  If the answer is no, then they may be eligible to have their Florida criminal record sealed or expunged.  As you can see, the rules for getting a criminal record sealed or expunged in Florida are quite stringent.  If you wish to review for yourself the rules regarding sealing or expunging your record, read Florida Statute Section 943.0585.  If you think you are eligible to get your Florida record sealed or expunged and you wish to have that done, contact an experienced Florida sealing record lawyer so that he or she can file the necessary paperwork to get your record sealed or expunged.
