Camden County NJ Expungement Attorney

With Offices in Collingswood, New Jersey

A criminal arrest or conviction can haunt you for the rest of your life. Thankfully, there may be a way for you to keep your record clean. New Jersey courts have the authority to expunge certain criminal arrests or convictions from a person’s permanent record. An expungement means that any record of past criminal transgressions, arrests, detentions, trials, or convictions will be removed from your permanent record. In other words, it will be as if the arrest or offense never occurred. As a result, future criminal background checks by potential employers will not damage your chances of getting a job.

Although some people choose to represent themselves when petitioning for an expungement, the best way to ensure that your petition is approved is to hire an experienced expungement lawyer who can guide you through the complicated process in New Jersey.

The legal team at the Law Offices of Leonard D. Biddison can help you with your expungement.

One of our knowledgeable criminal defense lawyers will look over your case file and offer guidance on how to petition the court for an expungement. We will also make sure that you don’t miss any filing deadlines.

What Are the Rules Governing Expungements in New Jersey?

In order to be granted an Order of Expungement, you will need to follow certain procedures and adhere to the rules governing expungements in New Jersey. You must first file a Petition for Expungement in the Superior Court in the county in which your arrest occurred. An experienced criminal defense attorney can help you file this petition and ensure that you meet the requirements and fulfill all legal obligations when applying for an expungement.

The State of New Jersey allows most criminal arrests and convictions to be removed from a person’s record under certain circumstances. However, convictions for the most violent offenses cannot be expunged. These offenses include homicide, kidnapping, luring, aggravated sexual assault, robbery, and arson.

The amount of time you must wait before becoming eligible for an expungement depends upon the nature of your arrest or offense:
