In Arizona, a DUI expungement is referred to as a set aside. This is when someone with a DUI conviction seeks to have it removed from his or her record. Because a DUI on someone’s record can affect their ability to gain certain employment or impact their educational endeavors, many people want to remove this notification so potential employers are unable to access it. At MayesTelles PLLC, we know what steps you must take to have your DUI conviction set aside.
Setting Aside Your DUI
When it comes to a DUI set aside, the most important thing you can do to help your case is prove to the judge that you have been responsible since you were convicted. This includes taking a number of steps associated with your DUI punishment.
Some of the requirements you may need to complete include:
- Completing your jail sentence, if applicable
- Completing probation without any additional problems, if applicable
- Attending any required classes
- Paying fines and fees
Benefits You Experience
Because of the impact a DUI can have on so many aspects of your life, getting a set aside can be very beneficial.
