A person's civil liberties may be restored. A person with only one Arizona felony conviction, whose civil rights were lost or suspended, had their rights automatically restored upon completion of a term of probation, or receipt of an absolute discharge from imprisonment if the person paid all imposed fines or restitution. However, this does not apply to the right to possess a weapon. To restore the right to possess a weapon the person must file an application with Maricopa County Superior Court.
A person with two or more Arizona felony convictions must file the applications to restore their civil liberties with Maricopa County Superior Court. A separate application will be required for each felony criminal case. For more information or to access the applications, please visit the Maricopa County Superior Court Website.
