If an individual seeks to have his or her record sealed or expunged, he or she must first submit an application to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE). The FDLE will then determine whether or not the applicant is eligible. If the individual is deemed to be eligible for a record sealing or expungement, he or she will be issued a certificate of eligibility. Once the applicant has received their certificate of eligibility, they must file a petition with the court, in which they formally request to have their record sealed or expunged.
This petition must include:
•A certificate of eligibility
•A sworn statement that states the offender has not been previously adjudicated guilty of any offense under Section 943.051(3)(b) of the Florida Statues
•A sworn statement that states the offender has never had his or her record sealed or expunged
•A sworn statement that states the offender is eligible to have his or her record sealed or expunged
After the petition is filed with the necessary documentation, the court will determine whether or not the offender will have his criminal record sealed or expunged.
