Contrary to popular belief, expungements in the State of Utah are not a right. They have to be requested and granted by a court which has great leeway whether or not to grant the request. Utah’s expungement law has changed in recent years which provides greater limitations on those who are eligible to even request an expungement from a court. Our firm can analyze your particular situation and advise you whether or not you are initially eligible and if not, ways to potentially get you eligible. A precise criminal history, including out of state cases, is required for this analysis. If you are unsure of your history, you can request a copy of your criminal history from Utah’s Bureau of Criminal Identification here: http://publicsafety.utah.gov/bci/yourcrimrecord.html.
