Speaker: Kenneth Vercammen, Esq. (Author: Criminal Law Forms by the American Bar Association).
If someone has been arrested or even had a private criminal complaint signed against them in the Municipal Court, they have a criminal record, even if the charges were dismissed or received a Conditional Discharge. Under NJ Law past criminal arrests and convictions can be expunged/erased under certain instances. This program will discuss the expungement process. Do you have children or someone you know or work with that needs an expungement?

More Info: The Petition all expungements are filed in the Superior Court. It takes a minimum of three months for the court to grant the expungement. The requirements are very formal. There can be a waiting period between 6 months up to 10 years after the criminal case is finished. For someone who had a drug charge, they can hire an attorney, apply for expungement 6 months after the Conditional Discharge is complete. The statute requires detailed notices served by the attorney on the State Police, Attorney General and numerous other government entities.
The statute on expungement was revised. Court costs and legal fees for expungement range from $1,500-$2,500.
