Instructions for Request to Restrict (Expunge) Arrest Record

Georgia law (O.C.G.A.  § 35-3-37) provides for the restriction of certain criminal history records for non-criminal justice purposes when approved by the prosecuting attorney.

For Arrests AFTER July 1, 2013

For arrest occurring July 1, 2013 or later, there is no application process required.  The prosecutor of your case may approve the restriction at the time of sentencing.  If restriction is approved upon sentence completion, it will be noted in the sentencing documentation forwarded to the court.

For Arrests BEFORE July 1, 2013

For arrests prior to July 1, 2013 the applicant is required to apply for restriction at the arresting agency.  Arresting agencies require a processing fee of $25.00 per date of arrest as authorized per § 35-3-37.  Call the arresting agency for the current fee charged. (click here for a list of Henry County agencies).

The REQUEST TO RESTRICT ARREST RECORD is a three page form and a Consent Form to run your background.  (click here for the form)

  • Section One is completed by the applicant.  Each request form may contain only one (1) Date of Arrest (there may be multiple charges for that arrest).
  • Section Two is completed by the arresting agency.  The arresting agency then forwards the entire form to the prosecutor for approval/denial.
  • Section Three is completed by the prosecutor.  If approved or denied by the prosecutor, the arresting agency will notify the applicant and a copy of the decision is made available.  This process generally takes 2-3 weeks.

*Refunds will not be issued by H.C.P.D. when applications are not approved by the prosecutor.  Requests for restrictions that have missing data will not be processed until all required data is received and the fee will not be refunded due to missing required data.
