How to Get Your Record Cleared in Arizona
In order to clear your record in Arizona, you may petition the court to enter on your record that you have been cleared of all charges. If successful, the judge will order all law enforcement agencies and courts to cease from distributing your arrest record to anyone. The arrest will be treated as if it never occurred. Another option offered in Arizona is to petition to ‘set aside judgment’, which is designed to help deserving people get a felony or misdemeanor conviction off of their record.

If you meet the eligibility requirements for sealing a record in Arizona, you may petition the court to enter on your record that you have been cleared of all charges. If successful, the judge will order all law enforcement agencies and courts to cease from distributing your arrest record to anyone. The arrest will be treated as if it never occurred.
If you wish to ‘set aside judgement’ on a felony or misdemeanor conviction, you must petition the court to have a conviction set aside after the terms of the sentence are met. If the court grants the petition, you will be cleared from all penalties and disabilities related to the conviction, with the exception of traffic violations and DUIs. However, any ‘set aside’ conviction can be used in future criminal prosecutions.
