    ok that was a form informing the person of his right, i need the forms to actually get my record expunged, in the last paragraph of the forms you provided it says to contact an attorney, i know you can get papers to file your own backruptcy, im looking for the forms to expunge my record in lyon county (emporia, ks) the forms im looking for are the ones that i need to file with the clerk of the district court so they can give them to the judge...and so on...

    Try contacting the court to see what additional forms are available, or if you can get a copy of the pleadings from a prior expungement case to use as a model.

    You actually tried obtaining pleadings from an existing court file to use as a model? They're public records, you know.
