As of December 2017, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement will not longer issue their standard blue Certificates of Eligibility with the raised FDLE seal. The new certificates are simple computer printouts with the case information and FDLE Certificate number on it.
The original Certificate must be filed with the Court, along with your petition, proposed order, and Affidavit in Support of your petition.
An experienced expungement attorney in the State of Florida can take care of this for you.
If you still have the old Certificate, they are valid up to one year of the issue date.
Eric Matheny is an expungement and sealing attorney who will seal and expunge records for clients throughout the State of Florida.
