Criminal Forms

A person that has been convicted of a felony may ask the court for relief if the person meets specific requirements.

Restoration of Civil Rights means that a person who has been convicted of a felony may have any civil rights (e.g., right to vote, and serve on a jury), which were lost or suspended by the felony conviction, restored.

Designating an Undesignated Class 6 Felony as a Misdemeanor means reducing an undesignated felony to a misdemeanor if the person had not been convicted of two felony offenses and the class 6 felony conviction was not a dangerous offense in that it did not involve the intentional or knowing infliction of serious physical injury or the discharge, use or threatening exhibition of a deadly weapon or dangerous instrument.

Post-Conviction Relief means the right of a person convicted of a crime to have his or her criminal conviction or sentence reviewed by a court for errors or mistakes. Sometimes post-conviction relief proceedings are called "Rule 32 Proceedings."

Set Aside means that a person who has completed probation or a sentence resulting from a criminal conviction may ask the court to dismiss the judgment of guilt and release the convicted person from all penalties and disabilities resulting from the conviction. In simpler terms, court and criminal history records no longer indicate a conviction, but that the conviction was set aside.

The forms available on this site are generic and may be accepted by courts statewide. Please note that each court might have their own preferred forms. You can visit AZCourtHelp.org for more information about court-specific forms.
