Expungements Protect Your Rights

Hackensack Expungement Attorney

What are Expungement Requirements in New Jersey?

If you are looking to clear your criminal record and get a fresh start, you may want to evaluate whether you qualify for an expungement in New Jersey. The law recently changed and certain expungements can be done by certain court staff in the appropriate circumstances. In most cases, you must wait 5 years after your sentence is served (4 years in certain circumstances), all fines and fees must be paid and you can only expunge only one conviction at a time.

Other options include hiring an attorney to complete the process. Expungements are frequently granted but some are contested by the prosecutor’s office.

An attorney can help you evaluate the likelihood of obtaining an expungement under New Jersey law.

Some of the factors considered include:

  • Prior record
  • Length of time passed since offense
  • The severity of the convictions on your record
  • The number of prior offenses
  • Amount of time you are arrest and conviction free

At the Law Office of Louis G. DeAngelis, LLC, our experienced attorneys can recognize those circumstances which may warrant an expungement.

Clear Your Record & Move Forward

Once an expungement is granted by the court, then your record is cleared. And if someone has been put on notice that your record has been expunged, then it is a criminal offense for them to make it public. The idea is that it didn’t happen and shouldn’t negatively affect important aspects of your life — as a criminal record would — such as employment or housing.

Having a criminal conviction on your record doesn’t have to be the end of the story. By leading a normal life and avoiding trouble, you may find yourself able to effectively erase the past and move forward. Our lawyers can help you determine if your circumstances are a good fit for expungement.
