What is expungement in Florida?
When you have a criminal charge, it shows up at the clerk’s office. It’s at the police department. It’s at Florida Department of Law Enforcement. When your record’s expunged, that record will no longer be available or even exist at the clerk’s office or at the police department. So, if somebody were to look on the website and pull up your name, it would not appear.
