Determining If Your Past Record Qualifies For Expungement
A past criminal record can limit your freedom for opportunities in many ways. Serving your sentence is part of the equation, but obstacles for your future can still be in your way. At Robert A. Scirocco and Associates Counselors at Law, we will help you determine if your record qualifies for expungement.
In New Jersey, a record within the criminal justice system or correctional facility may be subject to removal, including files such as:
- Docket records
- “Rap” sheets
The process of extracting and isolating qualifying records is best done by an experienced attorney. Call 973-691-1188 to arrange a consultation to discuss your legal options.
Expungements In New Jersey Are Complex
Before an expungement or sealing of the criminal record can be complete, the law requires a certain waiting period following conviction, fine payment, satisfactory completion of probation or parole or release from incarceration. The waiting period varies, depending on the conviction.
Juveniles may obtain an expungement under certain circumstances. If your teenager has a record for an offense related to criminal conduct, including a disorderly crime or ordinance violation, they may qualify for an expungement of their record.
