A: Lawyers will generally charge an investigative fee to see if your case is even eligible to be sealed or expunged, and then have a separate fee for doing the actual sealing process.

If you want to try and do it yourself, there are filing fees, certified mailing expenses, and court fees. I think the filing fee is $224 for the initial petition. You should research CRS § 24-72-702 through 710 to see if you are even eligible for sealing.
