Sealing or Expungment of Records

In Florida most criminal charges that are dismissed or receive a withhold of adjudication are eligible to be sealed or expunged.  Once a record is sealed or expunged you can honestly deny the existence of the case in most circumstances.  The sealing or expungment process in Florida can take up to six months.  It is important to contact an attorney early so they can begin a sealing or expungment process well before job applications or graduate school applications are due.  The sealing or expungment must be finalized before you can legally deny it’s existence.  Applicants must sign a variety of documents, get a background check with FDLE, and serve those documents on every agency with records.  This often includes the Sheriff, local law enforcement agencies, the clerk of the court, the State Attorney’s Office, and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.  At Friedman, Frank & Abrahamsen we can prepare all of the paperwork for your sealing or expungment and file it to everyone.  The only thing you will have to do is sign the documents and get fingerprints taken for your background check.  Contact us today to find out if you are eligible for your records to be sealed or expunged and the next steps to take to get the process started.
