Expungement

A criminal conviction, even a conviction of a disorderly person’s violation, can have life altering consequences. Persons with criminal records face significant obstacles in trying to obtain professional licenses and may be prevented from obtaining employment in regulated industries such as casinos, liquor businesses, real estate licenses, or other industries where a license is required. In this day and age, when employers have multiple candidates for jobs, potential employers often request a background check. Even little league coaches and scout leaders are often subjected to background checks. A conviction of a criminal or disorderly person’s offense, no matter how old can create real problems and serious embarrassment.

Fortunately, the State of New Jersey allows persons convicted of certain crimes and disorderly persons offenses to make an application to the Superior Court to have the record erased or expunged. Depending upon the nature of the charge, there is a time frame before which you can apply for expungement but there is never a deadline.

If you have any concerns, the Law Offices of Edward P. Azar can assist in clearing your record through the expungement process.
