The Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) is just now processing sealing or expungement applications submitted in July of 2016. This means that if you submitted an application to seal or expunge your Florida arrest record within the past 6-7 months, your wait time could be significantly higher than usual.
These delays are periodic. Sometimes FDLE is quick to process applications. Other times, they are not.
Before delays increase even more, please reach out to a qualified Florida sealing or expungement attorney who can get the process started immediately. Waiting even longer may only postpone the elimination of your embarrassing criminal record.
