Expungement of an Arrest Not Resulting in a Conviction in New Jersey 

The law for expungement of an arrest is explained under  N.J.S.A. 2C:52-6. It provides:

a. In all cases, except as herein provided, wherein a person has been arrested or held to answer for a crime, disorderly persons offense, petty disorderly persons offense or municipal ordinance violation under the laws of this State or of any governmental entity thereof and against whom proceedings were dismissed, or who was acquitted, or who was discharged without a conviction or finding of guilt, may at any time following the disposition of proceedings, present a duly verified petition as provided in section 2C:52-7 to the Superior Court in the county in which the disposition occurred praying that records of such arrest and all records and information pertaining thereto be expunged.

b. Any person who has had charges dismissed against him pursuant to P.L.1970, c. 226, § 27 (C. 24:21-27) [FN1] or pursuant to a program of supervisory treatment, shall be barred from the relief provided in this section until 6 months after the entry of the order of dismissal.

c. Any person who has been arrested or held to answer for a crime shall be barred from the relief provided in this section where the dismissal, discharge, or acquittal resulted from a determination that the person was insane or lacked the mental capacity to commit the crime charged.

Note: If you have been found not guilty at trial, or if the charged were dropped altogether, there are still steps that you need to take. At this point, even though a background check will show that the charges were dismissed, you may still find yourself having to explain to an employer what the arrest was for. Expungements for arrests can be done immediately as there is no waiting period.
