    Answered . The forms used in Orange County are found below, along with instructions. You can do this yourself or with the help of an attorney.

    The fee is actually $120.00. The $60 fee referenced in a prior answer applies to misdemeanor convictions, not felonies.

    Best of luck to you --

    Answered . Ask your attorney to file a petition and order for expungement, Judicial Counsel Form CR-180. You can do this yourself, actually, although your attorney will probably have a better shot at succeeding. Here's the link:
    There's a $60 fee, payable to the clerk of the applicable court. If you do it yourself, be sure to serve the prosecutor, and to add a certificate of service to the form you file with the court.
