Expungement Information & Instructions

1. You must first obtain a certificate of eligibility from the Utah Bureau of Criminal Identification (BCI) before filing a petition to expunge records. BCI is located at 3888 West 5400 South, Taylorsville, UT 84118. For your convenience, you may download the BCI Expungement Application Form on this link.  

2. Once you have received the certificate of eligibility from BCI, you will need to fill out a Petition to Expunge Records, Order on Petition, Acceptance of Service and Consent and Waiver of Hearing. (Forms may be found at the bottom of this page).

  1. All forms must be present and filled out completely at time of filing. Only sign the Petition. The Acceptance of Service form as well as the Consent and Waiver of Hearing are for the prosecutor to sign and the Order is for the Judge to sign.
  2. The fee for ANY expungement petition is $135, plus an additional fee for each certified copy needed. There is a $2 fee for court provided expungement forms.

3. You will also need to present the Certificate of Eligibility, Petition, Acceptance of Service and Consent of Waiver to the Prosecuting Agency, located at 5025 South State Street. The prosecutor will review your petition and if signed, they will notify the court. If denied, you may request a hearing

4. Once the court has received a response from the Prosecutor, the Judicial Assistant will submit your completed expungement packet to the Judge for his review. Once the order of expungement has been signed by the Judge, you will be notified by phone indicating that your documents are ready for pick-up. It is your responsibility to pick up the certified copies and distribute them to all the agencies involved.

** Please note: The Court will no longer be able to access any information pertaining to the case once the Court has expunged the record. Therefore, please make sure you request enough copies. **
