6. What information do I need to bring with me to the courthouse to file my petition?
In addition to a copy of your rap sheet (if you are filing in District 1, Chicago, see answer to
Question #3), you will need the titles and addresses of all legal entities involved in your case, even
if you were never prosecuted. These entities include:
The arresting authority: The law enforcement agency that arrested you. This is usually a police
department or sheriff’s department. If you were never arrested and were instead only given a
notice to appear in court, there will not be an arresting authority. If you were arrested by the City
of Chicago Police Department, you do not need to locate their address because it is pre-printed on
the Notice of Filing form available from the Clerk’s Office.
