Getting a Felony Expunged in South Jersey

People who have been convicted of crimes or disorderly persons offenses understand how the existence of such charges on their record may affect their ability to find the jobs of their choice or enter the professions to which they aspire. At the Law Offices of Agre & St. John, we have helped many clients remove the stigma of a criminal record so that they could enjoy an equal opportunity to compete for the jobs and professions of their choosing.

If you have been arrested, charged, or convicted of a crime in New Jersey as an adult or as a juvenile, you may be eligible for an expungement of your criminal record. The expungement process is the removal and isolation of your criminal or juvenile records on file within any court, correctional facility, or law enforcement agency. An expungement would seal any records concerning your apprehension, arrest, detention, trial or disposition of an offense within the criminal or juvenile justice system. If you are granted an expungement of your records, your arrest and any related proceedings are considered not to have occurred.

The New Jersey expungement law states in detail who is eligible for an expungement. If you have been convicted of certain offenses, you may not be eligible for an expungement. The expungement statute sets out what offenses are ineligible for expungement. If you are eligible for expungement, a Verified Petition for Expungement will be prepared and then filed in the Superior Court in the County in which the charge arose. That county’s prosecutor will have the opportunity to respond the Petition, but ultimately a judge will determine whether to grant the expungement.
