Perth Amboy Expungement Lawyer

By isolating evidence of a prior arrest or conviction, your criminal record becomes “clean” or “expunged.” In New Jersey, criminal background investigations are performed for numerous reasons including employment applications, firearm licenses, and home loan applications. Thus, obtaining an Expungement in New Jersey can be extremely important.
If you have ever been arrested in Perth Amboy, New Jersey you will have a criminal record. In New Jersey, the State Police, county prosecutor’s offices, superior courts, municipal courts and municipal police departments all keep records of arrests. These records are searchable. Therefore, if you have been arrested in Perth Amboy, present and future employers may be able to uncover your criminal history. This is true even if the charges were ultimately dismissed.
However, an individual who has previously been arrested and satisfies certain criteria pursuant to N.J.S.A 2C:52-1 may bring a motion to seal their criminal record. A sealed criminal record is treated as though it does not exist and may only be opened under very limited circumstances; otherwise it is only retrievable by court order.
