Expungement Lawyers In New Jersey
EXPUNGEMENT OR “SEALING” OF CRIMINAL RECORDS
If you have ever been denied access to a job, schooling, or a professional license as a result of a prior arrest or criminal conviction, you know how much of an obstacle a prior criminal record can be in the way of achieving your educational or career goals. Fortunately, in many circumstances, the law provides a way to have your prior criminal record “sealed” from public view.
Depending on the specific circumstances or your prior arrest and/or criminal conviction, you may be legally eligible to have your arrest and/or conviction record expunged or “sealed.” If your criminal arrest or conviction record is expunged, the law deems that prior arrest or conviction as having never occurred. If you obtain an expungement, you can truthfully respond “No” to any application that asks you the question: “Have you ever been arrested or convicted?”
Criminal arrest and/or conviction records are never automatically expunged or “sealed” in New Jersey. So if you have ever been arrested or convicted for a criminal offense, then you have a criminal record. Even if your criminal charges were outright dismissed or dismissed as a result of you successfully completing a diversionary program such as the Conditional Discharge, Conditional Dismissal, or Pre-Trial Intervention Program, the underlying criminal arrest will remain on your record unless and until you obtain an expungement.
