Expungement Lawyer in Union County, NJ

Is There a Limit to the Amount of New Jersey Arrests I May Have Expunged?

Yes. In New Jersey, an expungement is only available to those who meet the criteria set forth in N.J.S.A. 2C:52-1 et. seq. Your previous convictions may alter or permanently bar your ability to receive an expungement.

What If I Am Seeking the Expungement of an Indictable Conviction in NJ?

In New Jersey, if an individual is seeking the expungement of an indictable conviction, they must not have any other indictable conviction in their criminal history. N.J.S.A. 2C:52-2. As soon as an individual is convicted for a second indictable offense, all indictable convictions are permanently barred from being expunged.

If, however, an individual is seeking the expungement of an indictable conviction, and has no other indictable convictions on their record, the court will then determine their total number of disorderly persons or petty disorderly persons convictions. In New Jersey, a person seeking the expungement of an indictable conviction may only have up to (2) other disorderly persons, or petty disorderly persons convictions. Once an individual is convicted for his third disorderly persons or petty disorderly persons offense, they are permanently barred from having any of their indictable convictions expunged.

What If I Am Seeking the Expungement of a Disorderly Persons or Petty Disorderly Persons Conviction?

In New Jersey, an individual is not permitted to expunge a disorderly persons or petty disorderly persons offense if they have ever been convicted of an indictable offense. Therefore, as soon as an individual has been convicted of an indictable offense, all disorderly persons and petty disorderly persons convictions are permanently barred from being expunged.

If an individual has never been convicted of an indictable offense, they may have up to (3) disorderly persons or petty disorderly persons convictions expunged pursuant to N.J.S.A. 2C:52-3. Once an individual receives a fourth disorderly persons or petty disorderly persons conviction, they are permanently barred from expunging any of their disorderly persons or petty disorderly persons convictions.

Can I Expunge an Arrest That Resulted in a Dismissal Even If I Have Too Many Indictable or Disorderly Persons Convictions?

Yes. An individual may have any arrest resulting in dismissal expunged regardless of other convictions. N.J.S.A. 2C:52-6.
