Are criminal records ever automatically expunged in Florida?

The only criminal records in the state of Florida that are automatically sealed or expunged are records that come from a juvenile case. Juvenile actually has a specific statute that deals with automatic expungements. When we’re talking about any sort of adult case, there is no automatic seal or expunge. However, there are affirmative steps that someone can take assuming that they qualify to seal or expunge their record.
