Automatic Expungement

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.

*If your case was dismissed, you may have to wait a bit for the courts to automatically expunge. You might want to remove the link between your personal identifying information and the case while you wait. Find out more about “Delinking”.

Petition-Based Expungement

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.


402 Reduction(s)

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.


Traffic Expungement

This section provides you with the instructions and forms you need to expunge records for traffic offense convictions.  Note: a DUI is NOT a traffic offense, you may use the petition-based expungement guide above if you seek to expunge a DUI.
