Sealing and Expunging Fair

The hosts of the upcoming Sealing & Expunging Fair have made the difficult decision to POSTPONE the event to a later date. In light of the communitywide increase of COVID-19 cases and for the health and safety of the hundreds of volunteers and participants of this event, it will be held in the near future. Stay tuned for a date to be announced.

To hear about the new event date when it’s announced, please follow the SAO’s Facebook and Twitter pages, and check back on this webpage.

A criminal record can make it hard to find a job or rent a home. Would you like help in trying to seal or expunge an arrest record? Pre-register for the sealing and expunging fair by reviewing the eligibility requirements and submitting the registration form below.

*Please note, any cases that occurred before the age of 18 require a different process and will not be processed at this event.*

Please also note that we are not able to assist everyone at this event. Visit the FDLE’s website for more information about the record sealing and expungement processes.
