Florida Record Sealing

Seal Your Record Today!

The Feiler Law Firm is an Expert in Florida Record Sealing

Florida statute 943.059 allows you to seal the records of an arrest and court case when:
  1. Adjudication (conviction) was Withheld,
  2. The court withheld adjudication and the offense qualifies to be Sealed,
  3. You have never been convicted of anything (other than non-criminal traffic infraction) anywhere in the U.S.,
  4. You have not Sealed or Expunged any other criminal record in Florida.
Sealing allows you to have the criminal record erased from the public domain, and criminal justice agencies are not allowed to disclose the case information. After a criminal record is Sealed, it is confidential and usually unavailable to the general public, future employers, or other inquiring entities.
