Hello and thank you for the opportunity to assist you. Please remember that there might be a delay between your follow up questions and my answers because I may be helping other customers or taking a break.
Arizona has a liberal approach to expungement
and does allow some misdemeanors to be expunged, but only if you received a referral of no further action, placement in community programs, or an adjudication of delinquency. If this was a straight conviction, then it is not eligible for expungement.
Assuming this falls under one of the listed conditions where it can be expunged, you can file for it. However, there is no "form." This is a Petition, and has to be drafted by an attorney. There are no sample petitions online for AZ that I can find, I am afraid.
Finally, if this was a straight conviction, you have to have it pardoned first:
If pardoned, then it can be expunged, but pardons are generally not successful.
While the legal system tries to be inclusive of every possibility, sometimes people are morally wronged but have limited avenues to seek relief
. Please understand that this is not the expert’s fault. I am sure that you prefer that I tell you the truth rather than tell you what you want
to hear. Please do not “shoot the messenger.” This medium of communication may not always effectively express emotion but do know that I understand that this may not be easy to hear and I empathize.
