CONFIDENTIALITY FOR VICTIMS OF VIOLENT CRIME
Florida Statute 119.071(2)(j)1 states that victims of violent crime may ask the Clerk & Comptroller to remove their personal information from documents in the Official Record.
Victims of sexual battery, aggravated child abuse, aggravated stalking, harassment, aggravated battery or domestic violence must submit their request in writing and must include official verification that an applicable crime has occurred.
Personal information that qualifies for removal under F.S. 119.071(2)(j)1 includes the victim’s home or employment telephone number, home or employment address, and personal assets.
If you believe you have information that is protected by this statute and would like to have it shielded from public view:
Only records specifically listed on the Confidentiality Request Form will be modified. Any additional or subsequently-recorded documents will require a new Confidentiality Request Form.
