An experienced West Palm Beach expungement attorney can explain to you what receiving Withhold of Adjudication means and help you take the next step to clearing your record. If you were sentenced to probation, and finished it successfully without violating or without being adjudicated, you need to have the record sealed so that it will not appear on a background search.

When that happens Florida permits a person to seal a single arrest/case under certain circumstances, most important of which is that you have not ever been convicted of any crime. That means that multiple charges from one case, including a felony down filed to a misdemeanor, can be sealed. Unfortunately, unless the case was dismissed by the State Attorney, you would not be eligible for immediate expungement. However, after the case has been sealed for at least 10 years, you are eligible to have it expunged.

So, you might be wondering what is the difference between having a criminal history sealed versus having it expunged? According to FDLE:
When a criminal history record is sealed, the public will not have access to it. Certain governmental or related entities, primarily those listed in s. 943.059(4)(a), Florida Statutes, have access to sealed record information in its entirety.

When a record has been expunged, those entities which would have access to a sealed record will be informed that the subject of the record has had a record expunged, but would not have access to the record itself without a court order. All they would receive is a caveat statement indicating that “Criminal Information has been Expunged from this Record”.

Don’t delay. Put the arrest, case, and/or probation behind and have the record sealed. Call now to discuss having your case sealed.

Call West Palm Beach Expungement Attorney because no one wants their past to define their future.
