Broward County Expungements

Broward County: Ft Lauderdale

Removing the Past
for a Better Tomorrow.

A person arrested in Broward County, Florida, must petition the court within the county for a criminal arrest record expungement or sealing. We have represented people seeking record expungements and sealing in Fort Lauderdale and all of Broward County since 2002.

Broward County rarely requires a hearing. One of the more liberally minded counties in Florida, an expungement or record sealing is almost always granted provided you have all your ducks in a row when you file the petition.

Benefits of Expunged Record or Sealing in Broward County are Numerous

A criminal arrest record expungement or sealing destroys/removes official government records referring to your arrest from the public record. The public will no longer have access to your arrest information from online government sources, such as the Clerk of Court or Law Enforcement Agencies.

Additionally, private companies that sell public information will purge this information from their databases once they realize it is no longer a public record. This can be facilitated through notification or simply the passing of time.

You will have the legal ability to deny the arrest occurred. There are a few exceptions to this but this ability is one of the most powerful. Backing this up with a certified letter from the Clerk of Court indicating that no record exists is all that you should need.
