Question: Is it possible to remove a domestic violence charge from my record to stop having a delay when I purchase firearms?
Answer: A set aside may be available if a person was convicted of a felony in an Arizona Superior Court and that person has an absolute discharge from probation or prison. If a person is convicted of a misdemeanor in a Justice or City Court and successfully completes all court orders, that person might be eligible to have the conviction set aside.
A set aside is not available to a person convicted of a criminal offense:
Involving the infliction of serious physical injury,
Involving the use or exhibition of a deadly weapon or dangerous instrument,
For which the person is required or ordered by the court to register as a sex offender, A.R.S. § 13-3821,
For which there has been a finding of sexual motivation under A.R.S. § 13-118
In which the victim is a minor under 15 years of age, or
In violation of A.R.S. § 28-3473, any local ordinance relating to stopping, standing or operation of a vehicle or title 28, chapter 3, except a violation of §28-693 or any local ordinance relating to the same subject matter as A.R.S. § 28-693.
