An eligible individual can file the appropriate paperwork with the court in which the individual was charged and the court then has the discretion to grant an expungement, provided the indiivdual is eligible pursuant to the statutes cited above (first link). I apologize for my oversight regarding the forms link. I am unable to find a site with forms for Wyoming expungements. However, forms may potentially be available through the Clerk of Court's Office. Many individuals like to retain attorneys for assistance with the expungement process. The attorney can then evaluate eligibility and, if the indiivdual is eligible, file the proper paperwork for the individual. Attorneys often charge very affordable fees for expungements (as low as a few hundred dollars in many instances).
