Filing a Motion to Set Aside in Arizona

In Arizona, a criminal record “expungement” is called a “motion to set aside”.

 

On top of the punishment that a person receives when convicted of a crime, including prison time, fines and probation, they must also deal with the fact that their crime is now part of their public records. Criminal charges, arrests and convictions that show up on public records can have devastating effects on a person’s life, such as the inability to secure employment or to further their education. In some instances, a criminal record can make it difficult for a person to rent or buy a home.

 

The good news is, for those who qualify, there is a process that allows criminal charges and arrests to be sealed from your history.

 

How an Attorney Can Help

 

In order to set aside a criminal arrest or charge, there is a process that you must follow. Having a knowledgeable expungement attorney on your side during that process could mean the difference between success and failure.

 

Certain crimes are not allowed to be set aside in Arizona. When we sit down for an initial consultation, we will discuss your charges and whether or not a motion to set aside is an option for you.

 

As an expungement attorney, I have an understanding of the process and can make sure things are done correctly and on time. The last thing you want to do is jeopardize your record expungement because of a mistake or oversight.
