Under Florida Law, there is no provision for an automatic expungement of a criminal history record. Certain juvenile records might get sealed by the court automatically. However, at the end of the day, the process for an expungement is fairly drawn out and fairly detailed, and it’s something that the law requires every person to go through in order to have their record entirely expunged or to have those entries in your criminal history completely stricken.
This is an area of law that is best to obtain the assistance of an attorney because the narrow construction of the laws that are involved is something that you are going to probably require assistance with.
