The Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) is now processing sealing and expungement applications submitted in February 2018.
That means that FDLE is facing a 7-8 month backlog.
FDLE processes applications and will either submit a Certificate of Eligibility or a Letter of Denial. Without an FDLE Certificate, judges will not sign an order to seal or expunge.
Given the backlog, it is imperative that you begin the process to seal or expunge your Florida arrest record as soon as possible.
