Are there extra fees related to getting my record sealed?

Back

The Ohio legislature has passed a law which authorized the Attorney General to select a vendor to instruct background check companies to promptly remove sealed or expunged records from their database.

This service costs an extra $45 on top of the filing fee for applying to seal a criminal record.

The service is optional, and courts will review and make decisions on applications to seal a criminal record regardless of whether a person pays the additional fee.

When filing an application to seal a criminal record, the Clerk of Court should provide information about the service as well as an “opt out” form.
