Removing the Past
for a Better Tomorrow.
If you have an arrest record in Citrus County, Florida, you must petition the court within the county for a criminal arrest record expungement or sealing. This is the first and most important step to removing that black mark from your past.
I have personally represented people seeking record expungements and sealings in Inverness and all of Citrus County since 2002. Beautiful Citrus County sometimes requires a hearing but these are only when the State Attorney shows concern, which is what they are suppose to do to keep all of us on our toes. Find out if your Citrus County arrest record qualifies to be sealed or expunged.

The Benefits of Expunging or Sealing Your Record in Citrus County
Florida law provides numerous benefits when you expunge or seal your arrest record. 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.
