How Many Times Can I Expunge Or Seal My Record?

In the State of Florida people often wonder how many times they can seal or expunge their criminal record and are shocked to learn that Florida only allows you to seal or expunge (1) criminal record once in your lifetime.

An exception to this rule exists when more than one charge is given at the time of the arrest and all the charges are from the same incident. In this scenario you may be eligible to expunge multiple charges from the same incident if the charges qualify to seal or expunge.

If you have multiple criminal charges that arose out of separate arrests (that are both eligible to seal or expunge), you would need to choose which record to seal or expunge.

If you have ever sealed/expunged a record before, even if in another state, you cannot seal/expunge again.
