Expungement: Criminal Records In New Jersey

A criminal record can keep you from getting a job or a professional license. If you are being adversely affected by a past arrest or conviction, it may be possible to have those records sealed or expunged.

At the Law Office of Stephen D. Williams in Flemington, we handle expungements or record sealing for people who have been arrested or convicted on criminal charges in New Jersey. Attorney Stephen D. Williams offers a free 30-minute consultation to discuss your case and explain how expungement works.

What Kind Of Criminal Records Can Be Expunged In New Jersey?

In New Jersey, many types of criminal convictions and arrest records can be expunged, including:

  • Indecent exposure
  • Disorderly conduct
  • Shoplifting and theft charges
  • Drug charges
  • Second-degree or lower criminal charges

Some charges, such as a DUI conviction, cannot be expunged. Neither can serious criminal charges such as third-degree offenses.

Even if you were never convicted of a crime, you may still have a criminal record for the arrest that will be visible to anyone who searches for it, including employers, banks, licensing agencies and others. If the records are expunged, they will be permanently sealed. Once the records are sealed, you will be able to answer "no" if you are asked on a job application if you have been arrested or convicted of a crime.
