You may be able to clear your criminal record by filing an expungement petition. In an expungement, all of the records on file concerning your arrest, detention, trial, or conviction of a crime within any court, detention or correctional unit, law enforcement, criminal justice or juvenile justice agency are removed and considered not to have taken place. Specific criminal cases are eligible for expungement according to New Jersey law.
As an East Brunswick expungement attorney, I am fully versed in the laws surrounding this option. I can review your case for eligibility and help you file for an expungement where appropriate. I have helped many clients clear criminal and juvenile records in this way. Because court systems can be confusing and intimidating, it is in your best interests to have experienced legal representation in seeking an expungement.
Don't wait a momement longer to learn if you are eligible for expungement. Call (866) 760-6430 today!
If you have a criminal or juvenile conviction, it can negatively affect many aspects of your life well into the future. A criminal record can have adverse consequences on job and career opportunities, college and university applications, professional licenses, and even affect your ability to rent an apartment. Employers, educational facilities, potential landlords, and more can run background checks to discover your criminal or juvenile arrest or conviction. Even if the charges against you were dismissed or you completed a diversionary program, arrests and charges may still show up on a background check which can hamper your future prospects.
Criminal convictions remain on file indefinitely unless you have them removed through expungement. Once your record is expunged, future employers and others who access your background information will never know that it existed and you will have the right to say that you have not been arrested or convicted of a crime on an application.
The negative implications of having a criminal conviction on your record can follow you for decades following the incident. That means that one small mistake in the wake of your adolescent immaturities can dictate your chances of being hired even 20 years later! Do not let a momentary lapse in judgment ruin your life forever. As an East Brunswick and Freehold criminal defense lawyer, I believe in providing people with second chances, especially when they have demonstrated their honorable intentions through good behavior.
