An Overview Of Expungement


In all of New Jersey, if you are arrested or taken into custody for a criminal offense, or even for suspicion of criminal activity, an arrest record will be created. Whether the charges are dropped or not, whether you are found guilty or not, the record can be available to prospective employers and others for years. You may have difficulty getting credit, finding an apartment or even purchasing insurance.

An expungement can prevent access to your criminal record, allowing you to treat the event as if it never happened. Expungement is a complicated process, though, and there are specific rules to determine whether you qualify. It’s really critical that you work with an experienced attorney who understands the law and process governing expungements. We can help.
