To be eligible for expungment in Florida the charges/incidents against you must have been dismissed or nolle prosequi. Even if your charges where not filed there is still a record of your arrest or incident until it is expunged.

Of you are not eligible to have your record expunged alternatively you may have it sealed. To be eligible to have your record sealed you must have received a withhold of adjudication and not have been adjudicated guilty to the crime of which you plead. A charge that is sealed may be seen by certain entities that would not be able to get the same information if the arrest or incident was expunged. Someone who is not eligible to have there record expunged may be able to do so only after there record is sealed for 10 years or more. The Court can only order the sealing/expungment of one arrest or incident in a person’s lifetime.

The Florida department of law enforcement is the agency responsible for issuing a certificate of eligibility for sealing and expungment. Sealing and expungment is a timely process. At one point it took only 30 days to receive a certificate of expungment or sealing but due to an over abundance of applications the FDLE now takes up to 3 months before the application is returned to the petitioner.
