There are other benefits of obtaining a Florida Expungement of your criminal record. By obtaining an expungement of your Florida record, it will delete your criminal record and make it closed to everyone, including any government and public agency. Even though a copy of your record is still retained by the FDLE (Florida Department of Law Enforcement), it will not become the subject of the “Public records” statute and “access to public records/meetings” section of the Florida Constitution. Your record will only be disclosed if there is an order from a court of competent jurisdiction in your area.
