Arizona law uses the legal term “set aside” for expunging a conviction.

If your case resulted in a misdemeanor conviction and you have completed probation or your sentence, you may be eligible for a misdemeanor set aside pursuant to ARS 13-907. Convictions that are not eligible include cases involving a dangerous offense, some sex offenses and certain traffic offenses.
You can also often apply to have a felony conviction set aside. Again some felony cases, such as those involving a dangerous offense and some sex offenses and traffic offenses are not eligible to be set aside. Find out more about our Arizona felony set aside service.
If you were wrongfully arrested and the arrest did not lead to a conviction, you can petition the court under ARS 13-4051 to seal the records of that arrest. If granted, all records will be sealed and it will be as though the arrest never occurred. Learn more on our Arizona arrest record sealing.
If you are still on probation, you may be eligible to terminate your probation early. After the probation is terminated, you can request that the conviction be set aside. This is the quickest way to clear your record if you are currently on probation. Please see our page on probation termination for more information.
