New Jersey Expungement Attorneys Clear Your Record
Expungement is the legal way to do the following:
- Virtually eliminate access to your criminal record; and
- Make it possible for you to answer with a truthful "No" to the question "Have you ever been arrested or convicted?"
Managing Partner Ron Helmer discusses why having a criminal record is a major problem for people and how it can negatively impact your life.
In certain circumstances, you can have your criminal record expunged, i.e., "sealed." This makes it almost impossible to be found by any person or agency checking into your background. After expungement, your criminal record is unavailable to even police agencies in most circumstances.
Many individuals have experienced the disappointment of being rejected from a good job when the prospective employer learns of the applicant's prior arrest(s) and/or conviction(s). Successfully having your criminal record expunged can avoid this problem. Once a record is expunged under New Jersey law, the arrest(s) and conviction(s) are treated as if they never occurred. This process allows you to truthfully state on a job application or to a prospective employer that you have never been arrested or convicted of anything!
If you are eligible for an expungement and fail to obtain one, you are doing a huge disservice to yourself and the people who depend on you.
