The Office of the Clerk of Courts cannot and does not provide legal advice to anyone. Any questions regarding expungements must be directed to an attorney.
Update Relevant to Act 56 of 2018 (Clean Slate Law)
It is recommended that all filers preparing expungement Petitions ensure that any charges which they are requesting be expunged are listed on the Petition. Failure to include all charges on the Petition may result in expungement Petitions which are intended to be Full expungements only being processed as Partial expungements.
In many cases, some or all charges on a docket may have automatically been made Limited Access by the Clean Slate Law (Act 56 of 2018) without the necessity of a Petition. In such cases, the UJS docket sheet will not be available at all if all charges on a docket were made eligible for Act 56; if it is available, it may exclude charges which were eligible for Act 56.
If you are unable to verify the number or grading of the charges, please contact the Clerk of Courts office to request that information. Attorneys seeking to file on behalf of a client will need to file an Entry of Appearance to be permitted access to Limited Access records. Pro Se Filers will need to provide proof of identity to be provided with Limited Access records.
