Pardon Application Requirements
We will provide you with the necessary forms. You will need to obtain your criminal history. We can order this for you as part of our legal work or you can obtain this on your own. To request it:
Send the following information to:
State Police Bureau of Identification
1111 Country Club Road
Middletown, CT 06457-9294
- A completed copy of the “Criminal History Request for a Pardon” form
- A complete set of your fingerprints, obtainable at most local police stations (ask the police to use the green DPS125c form) or from the State Police Bureau of Identification for an additional fee of $15.
- A $50 check or money order payable to DPS.
You can contact the Bureau at (860)-685-8480 with questions.
Step 2: Obtain a copy of the police report(s) for any arrest resulting in conviction that occurred within the last ten years. A report of any arrest made more than ten years ago is not required. This is one of the most challenging aspects of the pardon’s process and many people choose to hire us to help with this process as we know the fastest ways to obtain these documents.
NOTE: Not all crimes are necessarily listed on your criminal history sheet. Out-of-state crimes, driving violations, etc. may not be listed on this sheet. However, you are still responsible for informing the Board of these crimes. If you were convicted of a crime not mentioned on the criminal history sheet, you must include/explain these convictions in your application. A pardon granted will be revoked if a conviction is not explained to the Board, regardless of reason.
Step 3: If you have served a period of probation, a letter from the supervising Office of Adult Probation indicating the date in which you were discharged from any period of probation must be obtained.
Step 4: Fill out the forms required by the Board. We will provide a packet of these forms or fill them out on your behalf.
