How Do I Know If I Am Eligible for an Expungement in New Jersey?

To be eligible for an expungement, you must have satisfied the applicable statutorily required waiting period. These waiting periods differ depending on the type of conviction you are seeking to expunge. The statutorily required waiting periods are found in N.J.S.A. 2C:52-1 et. seq.
