FORMS BOOK

Feel free to borrow and use as needed. Don't resell.

Initially, they began as Microsoft Word documents. After I discovered the power of PDF's, many more hours were spent converting these documents into PDF's; several became fillable.

The push now is to make these forms "web friendly:" drafting web form questionnaires, then generating PDF's from their contents. Although not all of these have become web forms, many have. Their links are contained herein where available.

This page contains a list of all forms that have been uploaded thus far, as well as tabs that list forms by category. Let me know if there's something missing you'd like; let me know if you find these helpful.

We wish you the best of luck in your practice, from my team to yours. And remember: serious cases require serious representation.

Used by Petitioners to expunge a misdemeanor conviction or criminal conviction from a person’s criminal background history. A number of pre-condictions must be met before a petitioner is eligible to expunge a non-violent conviction, including the passing of at least 5 years in misdemeanor cases (10 years in felony cases), and successful completion of all conditions imposed by the trial court sentencing judge.

Used by Petitioners seeking Expungement of non-violent North Carolina criminal convictions, including both misdemeanors and felonies, pursuant to N.C.G.S. 15A-145.5.

Instruction Packet provided by North Carolina Administrative Office of the Courts (NC AOC) to assist Petitioners properly complete Form AOC-CR-281.

This form is used to expunge criminal charges that have been voluntarily dismissed by the State. Use for any county in North Carolina; Fletcher Legal will be listed as Counsel of Record. Upon submit, an electronically generated PDF will be emailed to site admins for recording and filing. The expungement process is notoriously long – sometimes up to a year or longer – but automating the process has substantially reduced wait times, eliminating the need to meet with an attorney in person, and file these same documents afterwards.


Used by Petitioners seeking to remove dismissed criminal charges from their criminal backgrounds, there are two distinct types of dismissals: deferred dismissals, and voluntary dismissals. Expunging a Deferred Dismissal requires the payment of Court filing fees (apx. $185 – $200), whereas Expunctions of Voluntary Dismissals do not.

The key difference between Deferred and Voluntary Dismissals is whether the State’s dismissal of Defendant’s criminal charges was granted with our without conditions placed on the Defendant. If the criminal charges were dismissed because Defendant accepted an offer by the District Attorney to successfully completed some type of pre-trial, criminal diversion program, then the disposition type is a Deferred Dismissal. Alternatively, if the criminal charge(s) were unconditionally dismissed by the State, upon the District Attorney’s independant discretion, than the disposition type is Voluntary Dismissal.

Deferred Dismissals include dismissals that are a result of N.C.G.S. 90-96 compliance. Deferred Dismissals are the result of the Defendant successfully completing some program akin to a supervised or unsupervised probation, even though he has not yet been found guilty. The State will agree to defer proceedings (and ultimately dismiss them outright), if the Defendant admits his crime in writing, and submits to court supervision for usually 12-18 months. During this time, he’s usually required to complete community service, submit to random drug screens, and pay court costs. If all conditions are met, the charges are dismissed.

actually Expunge dismissed criminal charges, Deferred Dismissals and Voluntary Dismissals are nearly identical. Differentiating the two is critical, as the application process differs based on which method of disposition occurred.
