Your sealed record is available only to you, your attorney, criminal justice agencies for their criminal justice purposes, judges in the state courts system for the purpose of assisting them in their case-related decision-making responsibilities, or any of the groups listed above when you apply for employment, licensing or access authorization.
When your criminal history record has been ordered expunged, it may be lawfully denied, with the exception of the same circumstances listed above (except number 7). A record that has been ordered expunged is to be physically destroyed or obliterated (except for the record held by FDLE) and is not available to anyone without a court order, even you.
Remember – you are only permitted to have one criminal history record sealed or expunged in your lifetime, so make your choice carefully.
