If you have been convicted of a disorderly persons offense, petty disorderly persons offense, municipal ordinance violation or certain other crimes, you can petition the Court to have your record expunged. If you were arrested, but the charges were dismissed or you were found not guilty at trial, you can have your arrest record expunged as well.
The expungement process begins with a lawyer filing a petition or motion with the Superior Court. If the statutory requirements are met, a full and final expungement can be obtained in approximately 90 days after the petition is filed.
To start the expungement process, contact us at 908-231-7900 today to speak with one of our experienced and knowledgeable expungement attorneys.
In most instances, the entire expungement process can be performed over the telephone or through e-mail or regular mail. If the Court requires an appearance at the hearing, one of our attorneys will appear on your behalf. In rare instances, the Court asks the person seeking the expungement to appear as well.
