Question: Can a record be expunged online?
Answer: It is unclear what type of record to which you are referring. This answer will address criminal, felony records. In Arizona, the term “expunged” is the same as “set aside” when it refers to the record of a felony conviction. Arizona Statute 13-907 addresses what a set aside is and when a court may grant one. A court has the option of granting a set aside in certain cases. You must file the request to set aside in the same court in the same county where the original felony case was adjudicated (trial held or plea entered). Many counties have websites where you can download the correct forms to complete and then submit to the court. For example this is a form from Maricopa County. Generally, these forms have to be printed, filled out, and then mailed or hand delivered to the appropriate court location which should be listed on the form. If the county/ court’s website does not have the forms available, you can go to that county’s “Clerk of the Court” office in person and pick them up. You can find the address for the Clerk of the Court on the county’s website. You can also find additional information at AZLawHelp-Conviction Set Aside.
