Expungement Tool Kit
A criminal record creates barriers to employment, housing, and other opportunities. Getting an expungement—or “cleaning up” your record—means a person may honestly say that the arrest or conviction did not happen.
This website is a community resource that provides information and guidance on cleaning up your Utah criminal records.
Some low-level records will be automatically expunged by the courts. No application or petition is required. This takes you to Clean Slate Utah’s website where you can find out more.
Petition-based expungement is the process for cleaning up records that do not qualify for automatic expungement.
The petition process is complicated and lengthy. This is a step-by-step guide that breaks down the process and includes all the forms you will need.
This section provides you with the instructions and forms you need for a 402 reduction. A “402 Reduction” is when the court agrees to change a conviction to a less serious degree. Sometimes this is required before you can qualify for expungement. Find out more by answering some questions.
