Expedited Record Option with Application for Sealing of Record


Ohio Revised Code § 109.38 was implemented to assist individuals whose record is Sealed/Expunged per a court order in having the record promptly removed from background check companies.

In February 2018, Higbee and Associates (Selected Vendor) established a portal for those who have chosen to Opt In to the Expedited Record Update Service when the Court Grants a Sealing/Expungement.

What is Required?

The Court is required to provide notice there is an opportunity for the individual filer/Attorney of Record to Opt In or Opt Out of this service at the time of filing the Application for Sealing/Expungement. Court clerks will provide this form at the time of filing if the applicant does not have the form. This form is located in the Forms Tab on the court’s website:

The expedited record update service form must be completed at the time of filing. If an Attorney or individual is filing via US Mail, this form must be included with the application for sealing, along with the cost for the sealing of $50.00 as well as the $45.00 fee that is required to be paid at the time of filing. The $45.00 fee is placed on-deposit until the Application for Sealing/Expungement is Granted or Denied by the Court. If the court denies the application, the $45.00 fee is refunded to the individual. If the sealing is granted, the $45.00 is submitted to Higbee & Associates. There is only one (1) fee of $45.00 per individual even if the defendant had multiple cases.

DISCLAIMER:Please note: Fairborn Municipal Court has not contracted with Higbee & Associates for this service. The Ohio Attorney General chose this firm. If you OPT IN to this program with Higbee & Associates, the Fairborn Municipal Court does not guarantee that every record of your case will be completely eradicated from all data repositories. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the effectiveness of this program, please contact Higbee & Associates at
