Did you know that if you have ever been arrested and/or charged with a criminal offense, you now have a criminal record that will stay with you for life – unless you have the record expunged?  Even if the charges against you were dismissed or your were found not guilty or acquitted of the offense anyone running a background check on you will be able to see that you were arrested as well as what the original charges were for.

At Katherine O’Brien Law, our New Jersey expungement lawyers understand how important it is to have a clean criminal history.  Our expungement lawyers are prepared to work with you in expunging your record so that it no longer comes up on a background check.

Expunge Definition

In New Jersey, if you have been charged with a criminal offense, you may be able to have that record expunged.  Expungement means that the criminal record will be “extracted and isolated.”  Expungement does not literally destroy or erase your criminal records.  Instead, your records will be segregated and made not generally available to the public.

This means that any courts, police departments, or other agencies that have your records, will be required to move your expunged records to an isolated location.  The records that will be expunged include your fingerprints, photographs, complaints, warrants, and other processing records.

After expungement, your arrest and/or conviction information will no longer be publicly available.  Thus, employers, landlords, creditors, and any others conducting criminal background checks will not be able to view the expunged records.  Instead, they would receive a message of “no record” in response to a search.

Expungement Eligibility  

Under New Jersey law, there are certain requirements that must be met in order for an offense to be eligible for expungement.  The law regarding expungement eligibility in New Jersey is not only complex, but it is also rapidly changing.  Thus, you should use online “Expungement Eligibility Quizzes” with caution as our knowledgeable expungement lawyers have noticed that many of these tools are out of date.  Instead, while you are always encouraged to research your particular matter online, it is highly recommended that you also speak with an expungement lawyer.

At Katherine O’Brien Law, we offer free Expungement Analysis Sessions, where we obtain your criminal history and then speak to you regarding your expungement eligibility.  Call us today or fill out our Expungement Interview Form to get started with your free Expungement Analysis Session.
