2018 Sealing And Expungement Update

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is currently processing sealing and expungement applications received in September of 2017.  This means that FDLE is experiencing a six-month backlog of applications.

If you applied for a sealing or expungement and submitted your application to FDLE in September of 2017, you, or your attorney, should be receiving correspondence from FDLE shortly.  This correspondence will either be a Certificate of Eligibility or a letter of denial.

Eric Matheny is an attorney who assists clients with sealing or expunging criminal records throughout the State of Florida.
