Answer:

In AZ, having convictions set aside is possible but doesn’t cover everything. You can contact the Superior Court of Arizona in whatever county you live in. For example, in Maricopa County you can go online to the following website; https://www.superiorcourt.maricopa.gov/SuperiorCourt/Self-ServiceCenter/Forms/CriminalCases/index.asp, there you will find the required paperwork for applying to have you rights restored and have convictions “set aside.” As you stated, part of the requirement is that you have completed ALL of the court’s orders and the court typically wants to see that you not had any subsequent offense within the last year.

 

You can refer to Arizona Revised Statute 13-904 through 13-912 in regards to the state laws governing restoration of civil rights and set aside convictions.

 

There is also the option of contacting legal services that can help you fill out the paperwork. Community Legal Services offers these services for discounted rates and Goodwill has clinics that help people complete this paperwork.
